North Myrtle Beach has been ranked by WalletHub as America’s 5th best beach town for liveability.
Sadly, some people don’t pursue their dream of living by the water, precisely because of the misconception that beach towns are relatively more expensive and generally less livable than landlocked cities. Contrary to popular belief, however, many beach towns are suitable to everyday life — and easy on the wallet
In order to determine the beach communities that are ideal for making one’s permanent home, WalletHub compared 191 cities across 62 key indicators of livability. We split our comparison into two categories, towns located by the ocean and by lakes. Our data set ranges from housing costs to share of for-sale waterfront homes to quality of beach water.
