The Happiest and Healthiest Beach Towns in America

News flash: Being near the beach is good for you (says science!). But, according to a report, some beach towns might actually be better for your health than others. Gallup-Sharecare polled more than 337,000 people across the country on their life satisfaction—from physical well-being to the amount of time they spend worrying—and it seems saltwater therapy might actually pay off (plus a margarita every now and then—that helps, too!). Of the top 25 cities with the highest well-being, 10 of them are on the coast. See which beach towns made the cut:

  1. Good to know the benefits of living near oceans! Carlsbad made the list! There are other beautiful beaches around San Diego! Thanks, Mihran! Happy Weekend! 📚Christine

  2. I’ve been in Barnstable and Santa Barbara. Equally beautiful in their own way.
