We have so many beautiful beach towns up and down the Jersey Shore but only one beach in the state made a recent list by the website Stacker of the best beach towns to live in the entire country.

The list is comprised of data from Wallethub that compares beach towns all across the country. Weather, safety, economy, education, health, and quality of life factors all played a part in determining the rankings.

The only beach town to make the list from the entire state was Ocean City which came in at number 47 on the list. Safety and quality of life rankings were a big factor in determining Ocean City's ranking.

It's awesome that Ocean City made the list but its ranking should be much higher and a number of our beautiful beaches deserve and should be on the list. From Cape May to Margate, to Avon, to Birgantne to LBI, and of course beaches in the northern part of our state including Sporing Lake and  Avon by the Sea we have so many awesome beach towns to call home.

Just in case you were wondering the number one best beach town to live in was Naples, Florida.
