The Top 5 Spots for Beachfront Homes

A few weeks ago, I did a post on locations where you would want your vacation home. These locations were scattered throughout the US. …But now that we’re pretty much full steam ahead into summer, one location always comes to mind: The beach!

Have you ever wanted a beachfront home? (If you said ‘no’ to this, you’re not human.) ..haha, I kid! But really, ever since I was little, I’ve always dreamed of a beachfront home. Falling alseep to the sound of the waves and a cool sea breeze is so perfect!

So where are these top 5 spots for beachfront homes? Let me show you:

  1. Belvedere, California – While the beachfront homes in this city come at a pretty penny, it is truly worth it. Belvedere, California is actually made up of two “islands” off of Tiburon Peninsula with a lagoon between them. (How cool is that?) This is the ultimate location for rest and relaxation, as no stores or restaurants are allowed in Belvedere. If you’re looking for a beachfront home that is the epitome of serenity, get your butt over to the West Coast. You will want to make sure you can fit a sailboat in front of your beachfront home, as Belvedere is noted for it’s fantastic sailing!

  1. Westerly, Rhode Island This town in Rhode Island is noted for it’s gorgeous beaches and historical sites. If you have always wanted to move to the East Coast, this cute town might be perfect for you. However, tourism is one of Westerly’s main industries, so if you’re looking for peace and quiet in the summer time, a beachfront home in this area might not be the best idea. Just a few short hours away from many major cities on the East Coast, Westerly, Rhode Island puts you in the heart of the East Coast!

  1. Northeast Harbor, Maine – This is my personal favorite. Ever since I was a kid, Maine was always a vacation spot my parents loved to take us to. It was a long drive from Ohio, but a fun one. We got to stop and see all of the beautiful scenery New England had to offer along the way! While the Atlantic Ocean might not be the warmest, it is still a beautiful sight. Summers on the Maine coastline are the perfect temperature; not too hot and there’s always a cool breeze to take your mind off of the humidity. The scenic Acadia National Park is nearby and you’re sure to get an eyeful of wildlife! This part of Maine is far enough away from the tourist areas, so you’ll get a chance to sit back and enjoy the breathtaking sights. If you love sailing, this is the perfect place to do it! Nothing beats the Maine Coastline!

  1. Laguna Beach, California One of the oldest cities in historic Orange County California, beachfront homes in this area are also pretty pricey. In the late 60s and early 70s, the Laguna Beach area was known as the ‘alternative’ culture. In today’s society, this area is probably most known for the MTV Show, Laguna Beach. No matter which era you think of Laguna Beach as, there’s no denying the beauty that surrounds the beachfront homes. With an abundance of sunshine year round and a slew of annual cultural events, you’ll never be bored in this area!

  1. Boca Raton, Florida You don’t have to be in your retirement years to purchase beachfront homes in Florida. In fact, Boca Raton is a booming business area. Boca Raton, Florida is known for it’s high income demographic and very social communities. If you love tropical weather, start planning to buy your beachfront home here. If you have always wanted to move to Florida before you retire, this might be your city!
