About the Voting
How we picked the finalists:
To choose the 2018 finalists, we called for nominations via social media. From there, we looked at their rank on the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, percentage of clear and sunny days, healthiness of beaches, commute times, walkability, crime ratings, standard of living and financial well-being of locals, geographic diversity, and our editors’ assessment of each town's “coastal vibe.” The result: an all-star list for 2018 from every coast! (Previous winners were not eligible.)
How often can I vote?
You can vote once per minute. Votes are limited to one per IP address.
The final rankings will be revealed online Tuesday, June 12, 2018! Don’t miss it!
