Who doesn't dream of a live on the beach? There are few things better than being able to wake up every morning and be steps away from white sand and crystal blue waters. Plus, when the beach community is filled with other incredible amenities, life doesn't get much better. Personal finance website WalletHub wanted to figure out 2017’s Best Beach Towns to Live In. They wanted to find communities that were liveable and easy on the wallet. When the results came in......Suncoast communities were found to be some of the best of the best!

 

To begin their search for the best beach communities, WalletHub narrowed it down to those beach towns that have 10,000 and 150,000 residents and at least one beach listed on TripAdvisor®. This left 227 American cities to compare. The website than compared the towns based on the following 6 key dimensions: Affordability, Weather, Safety, Economy, Education & Health, and Quality of Life. Within each of these dimensions were numerous metrics that help make a community more liveable, such as access to amenities and recreational facilities, quality of schools, housing market, climate, crime rates, etc. These factors were all weighted to help determine a city's overall score.

 

 

After the data was collected, Sarasota claimed the #12 spot and Venice the #28 out of 227!
