Well, it’s Kiawah Island, S.C., according to Coastal Living Magazine‘s new rankings – America’s Happiest Seaside Town.

The list was compiled using a complicated formula involving editors’ picks, the Gallup Healthways Well-Being Index, sunny days, beach quality, low crime, commute time, education of residents and other factors. The other waterfront places where life is supposedly a smiley face:

2. Naples, Fla.

3. Sausalito, Calif.

4. Lake Bluff, Ill.

5. Tiburon, Calif.

6. Laguna Beach, Calif.

7. Half Moon Bay, Calif.

8. Chatham, Mass.

11. Marblehead, Mass.

12. Stinson Beach, Calif.

13. Cohasset, Mass.

14. Duxbury, Mass.

15. Solomons Island, Md.

You can read about why each town is so blissful in Coastal Living‘s June issue or on its website.
