While most of the country will be celebrating the ol' red, white, and blue today by hitting up the nearest beach to catch some well-deserved rays, we're once again struck by how lucky we are to have so many stellar shores right in our own backyard.
So, to salute those who make up our homegrown battalion of major beach babes, we've rounded up the best
street sand-style snaps from El Porto to El Matador. Before you head out to the boardwalk today, take a gander at these 15 cool pics and get sartorially inspired by the casual-cool vibes. Then grab some SPF, and we'll see you in the surf!
