Recently, Coastal Living Magazine announced America’s 15 Happiest Seaside Towns.

CL started with their own “dream list” which included nominations from their facebook fans. They then used the “Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, percentage of sunny and clear days, healthiness of beaches, commute times, walkability, school and crime ratings, education and financial security of the locals, and geographic diversity.”

Finally they polled their own editors to see which of the finalists have that special “coastal vibe”.

Voila! Below are the results:

  • Kiawah Island, South Carolina
  • Naples, Florida
  • Sausalito, California
  • Lake Bluff, Illinois
  • Tiburon, California
  • Laguna Beach, California
  • Half Moon Bay, California
  • Chatham, Massachusettes
  • Juniper, Florida
  • Lahaina, Hawaii
  • Marblehead, Massachusettes
  • Stinson Beach, California
  • Cohasset, Massachusettes
  • Duxbury, Massachusettes
  • Solomans Island, Maryland

Wow! What a list. What do you think? Tell us…do you think your town should be here?
