Local gem Huntington Beach made USA Today's short list of who's got the best freshwater beach in America.

The poll is part of their Readers' Choice 2016 voting asking readers to choose the best of the best in America. If you recall, Cleveland is also on their voting list for best beer city in America.



Here's what USA Today has to say about it.

Cleveland natives have been enjoying this signature strand for eons, and these days it’s cleaner than ever, having been awarded Blue Wave designation by the Clean Beaches Coalition several years back – it was the first Ohio beach to receive this environmental distinction. In summertime, eager bathers come to enjoy the cooling waters of its sandy, half-mile lakefront, along with ice cream from the popular on-site concession stand. Huntington Beach’s sweeping shoreline views don’t hurt, either.




Huntington Beach is currently ranked in the top five for the poll. Voting ends at 12 p.m. on March 14, and you may vote once per day.
