It’s June, it’s Friday, and you’re probably thinking of being somewhere else. Probably the tropics, but you know what the next best thing is? Apartments with amazing views and awesome pools.

Check out these waterside apartments with an assortment of cabanas, pools, and coastal access in cities across the U.S. Perhaps it's time to plan a staycation this summer?
