Coastal Living "Happiest Seaside Towns"




Ok I Subscribe & LuV Coastal Living Magazine and not just because it usually features Florida beaches, but it's gorgeous to peruse thru on a afternoon off with lemonade & my feet up!

I am going to start sharing some of their nuggets from the Magazine! Hope u likey!!

And I'm a bit bewildered that only two towns in Florida made it!
I've lived in Naples, Fl and it's nice and Jupiter, Fl is nice but their both Affluent areas! and we also lived 2 miles from Laguna Beach! It's again very nice but uber Affluent!

I would Add:
-Treasure Island, Fl
-Satellite Beach, Fl
-Flagler Beach, Fl

But you decide!

Here's the Press Release they sent me:
