While Northeastern beachgoers have to face painfully inconsistent weather conditions for their measly three months of sun time, we're lucky enough to count on that tropical sunshine more often than not. Yes, we get our rainy spells (the last week, for example), but most tropical showers pass quickly, allowing us to soak up that summer sizzle. (But not too much -- sunburns are for tourists, y'all.)
