Some of California’s quaintest coastal towns are getting a big dose of recognition. Coastal Living Magazine recently ranked the “Happiest Seaside Towns in the USA.” The list was compiled using a detailed formula taking into consideration editors’ picks, the Gallup Healthways Well-Being Index, sunny days, beach quality, low crime, commute time, education of residents and other factors. Coming in on the top ten list are Laguna Beach and Half Moon Bay at #6 and #7, respectively. Laguna Beach was also just named one of Smithsonian Magazine’s best “small towns” in America.
We here at Pacifica know that many of California’s coastal towns have that something special, that something that makes its residents and visitors keep a smile glued on their faces. And that’s one reason we have hotels in many of these seaside cities, including Laguna Beach and Half Moon Bay. Whether it’s the abundance of sunny days, pristine beach quality, comfortable vibe or just the enveloping cheerfulness, we’re glad to know we can offer our guests some joy.
