OCEAN CITY, N.J. -

You won't have to travel too far to visit America's happiest seaside town.

Coastal Living magazine has named the Top Ten 2018 Happiest Seaside Towns in America and the No. 1 spot went to Ocean City, New Jersey.

The Jersey shore destination beat out places like Cape Charles in Virginia, and the Hampton Beach in New Hampshire.

To choose the 2018 finalists for America's Happiest Seaside Towns, Coastal Living editors reviewed more than 300 towns nominated via social media.

They looked at things such as the number of sunny days each town had, air quality, healthiness of beaches, commute times, crime ratings, and each town's coastal vibe.
