This country came from the sea.  Almost all of us have ancestors who came across oceans to be here, much of our early growth and prosperity came from fishing, boat building and trade, and the oceans served as a protective barrier for many years.  Here are nine pages of places that celebrate that heritage.  Let us know of those we've missed.
