For the second year in the row, the magazine “Coastal Living” has named America’s Happiest Seaside Towns.
Coming in at #3 is Sanibel Island, FL
This is how Coastal Magazine describes our little piece of paradise; “Life in this South Florida island town is a pastel dream. Picture pale blue skies and white-sand beaches. The island was literally built on millions of seashells. When locals dig in their backyards, they turn up conch, scallop, and clam shells – intact. The town offers a quiet, away-from-it-all life. No stoplights, nor buildings taller than the tallest palm tree.”
The millions of tinted seashells that have literally built the island on which this little town sits have made Sanibel famous around the world. Its 6,469 residents enjoy access to 15 miles of unspoiled beaches.
Even the Today Show got into the game, vividly describing each of the top 5 which includes:
#1 Beaufort, South S.C.
#2 Harwich Port, Mass.
#3 Sanibel Island, Fla.
#4 Sag Harbor, N.Y.
#5 Newport, R.I.
