Florida Spot Ranked Top Coastal Town in the U.S.
We’re heading into December, so it’s difficult to think about beaches right now. But, in certain areas of the U.S., it’s always a good time to hit the beach. As someone who lives in the Midwest, I definitely wish we could have our beaches open year-round. But, it obviously gets super cold in the Midwest during the winter months. That said, if you’re looking at a winter getaway and America’s best vacations, Good Housekeeping has has a new list out. It features the best coastal areas in America. What’s extra cool is that one Florida spot has been named a top coastal town in the U.S.

The report highlights beaches and getaways from all over, including getaways in Jamaica, Mexico, Puerto Rico, New York and even Portugal. One interesting pick was their “cottages at the lake” choice at The Cove. That’s located at Sylvan Beach in Sylvan Beach, New York. The Cove at Sylvan Beach boasts 70 two- and three-bedroom cottages with kitchens, outdoor grills, living rooms and washer/dryers. As a Midwestern, that sounds like a totally familiar vacation.
