Coastal Living: 20 Best Places to Live on the Coast in 2018

Ready for your dream life to begin? These amazing locations, from little beach towns to humming coastal cities, from sweet domestic islands to expat escapes, are ready for you.

Long Branch, New Jersey

Population: 30,941
Sunny Days Per Year: 213
