How we picked the finalists:
To choose the 2017 finalists, we began by reviewing destinations that have been covered by the magazine and nominated via social media. From there, we looked at 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 the locals, geographic diversity, and our editors' assessment of each town's “coastal vibe.” The result: an all-star list for 2017 from every coast! (Previous winners were not eligible.)
How often can I vote?
You can vote every 15 minutes. Votes are limited to one per IP address.
The final rankings will be revealed online beginning at 7am EST on Wednesday, January 11, 2017! Don’t miss it!
