Best Beach Towns to Live in (2023)

Some of the states people moved to most in 2020 were Florida, North Carolina and Maine, all of which are in the top ten states with the largest coastlines. Many people don’t just want the beach experience for a week or two, though – they long to live on the waterfront. After all, beachside communities often represent a relaxed and luxurious way of life. Sadly, some people don’t pursue their dream of living by the water, precisely because of the misconception that beach towns are relatively more expensive and generally less livable than landlocked cities. Contrary to popular belief, however, many beach towns are suitable to everyday life — and easy on the wallet

In order to determine the beach communities that are ideal for making one’s permanent home, WalletHub compared 191 cities across 62 key indicators of livability. We split our comparison into two categories, towns located by the ocean and by lakes. Our data set ranges from housing costs to share of for-sale waterfront homes to quality of beach water.

Ask the Experts

Beach-town life is not for everyone. To help prospective residents make the best decision, we asked a panel of experts to share their thoughts on the following key questions:

(Video) Top 10 Cheapest Beach Towns in the US.

  1. What should people look for in choosing a beach property?
  2. Is it better to live in a beach town with a large year-round population compared to those with a more seasonal population?
  3. What affects the value of beach properties over time? How can someone determine if a given property is a good investment for the long term?
  4. With the coronavirus crisis having such a large impact on beach town economies, what are some measures that can be taken to reopen beaches, state parks and local businesses safely?
  5. How might beachfront real estate be affected by rising ocean levels due to climate change? Are some areas more vulnerable than others? What can homeowners and/or local authorities do to mitigate potential problems due to climate change?

Methodology

In order to determine the best beach towns in America, WalletHub compared 191 cities across six key dimensions: 1) Affordability, 2) Weather, 3) Safety, 4) Economy, 5) Education & Health and 6) Quality of Life, splitting the sample into ocean towns and lake towns.

(Video) The Best Rural Small Towns in Florida

We evaluated those dimensions using 62 relevant metrics, which are listed below with their corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the most favorable conditions for beach-town living.

Finally, we determined each city’s weighted average across all metrics to calculate its total score and used the resulting scores to rank-order our sample.

Our sample includes all cities with populations between 10,000 and 150,000 and at least one beach listed on TripAdvisor. For metrics marked with an asterisk (*), the square root of the population was used to calculate the population size in order to avoid overcompensating for minor differences across cities.
