After going toe-to-toe with charming towns such as Cape May, New Jersey and Sarasota, Florida, Langley was named the fifth happiest seaside town in America by Coastal Living magazine.
Langley was nominate back in October, and voting was conducted on Coastal Living’s website. It was the first town in Washington that was nominated for the annual list. A town on the West Coast has never won the award.
Coastal Living Travel Editor Tracey Minkin described Langley as, “a combination of classic New England style where village meets beautiful, adventuresome Puget Sound.”
“We love how you live your life so close to Seattle but miles away in terms of your island mentality,” Minkin said.
The lakeside town Grand Haven, Michigan took first place.
