20 most populous U.S. cities on the sea

Name the 20 most populous (city proper, 2017 census estimates) American cities that touch the sea (within city limits).
Sea means saltwater or brackish water (Great Lakes don't count)
Bays, inlets, sounds, estuaries and tidal rivers count if the salt front is within city limits
Salt front varies day to day and also depends on the definition used, so there is bound to be disagreement. Hope you enjoy the quiz nonetheless.
