Congratulations Delray Beach- Want One More Reason to Love It Here?

Thank  you to Coastal Living Magazine for naming Delray Beach the 3rd Happiest Seaside Town in America.

Ou course, I’m a bit biased and feel that Delray Beach is First in all things happy, but we’ll say  YIPPEE to 3rd place.

Several months ago, Coastal Living Magazine asked readers to vote on the Happiest Seaside Town.  There were 10 finalists and the winners were announced in their latest issue.


See for yourself why Delray Beach is one of America’s Happiest Towns.

Good morning, Kathy -- congrats to Delray Beach for their high ranking in Coastal Living Magazine's survey.  I've been to two on list(of course in California) but would certainly enjoy a personal Florida tour by you and Sharon Tara in Portsmouth, NH.

Good morning Kathy. Your pictures are incredible. I think had the results been based on them, Delray would have been number one.

James- glad you had a good trip!  Safe journey home. 

Randy- we do have sharks here- unfortunately not immune to them!  It likes to call itself the Village by the Sea. 

Kim- we'll take that!  it is a wonderful town. 

Dorie- add that to our previous title of Most Fun Small Town and it's a very good place to live. 

Jeffrey- we love it here.  If my family were here it would be perfect.

Nina- I'm not familiar with Southport either but it would be fun to check it out. 

Wayne- I know!  Kudos to Florida!!!

Sally and David- I have no idea!!!   But we'll take it. 

Bill- it's tough, but someone has to win the titles!!! lol

Michael- you get yourself here and you'll get that tour!!! Michael Jacobs 

Donald- exactly!  If this were Texas, it would be even better. 

Sheila- that is too sweet of you!  Thank you. 

Brian- well-l-l-l  some people would disagree with that.  I think we hid all of the not-so-nice people when they were considering us.

Kathy, I am not surprised at all that DelRay Beach is one of the Happiest Seaside Towns.... You provide great photos and information on this area and you are a true ambassador for DelRay Beach.

Congrats on #3!!!!

I voted my little fingers to the bone for this darned contest and was very disappointed to see Portsmouth end up at the bottom. I really hoped one of our beautiful homes would be #1.

Hey, top 10 is still pretty good!

Hi Kathy - I'm sure your happy presence had a lot to do with that happy beach town ranking - kudos to Delray Beach. On a side note, I can't believe we didn't make that list at all :(

Will- I try awfully hard. 

Capt Wayne-   I do love it, almost as much as my home state of Texas. 

Rebecca- thank you!  We love living here. 

Sharon- I know... we were both voting, but yes, at least we were both in the top 10. Sharon Tara 

Barbara Jo- you can always judge when the snowbirds will come down by how early winter comes up north. 

Dick- gee Dick.... it was seaside NOT Mountainside!!! Dick Greenberg
