In a recent article by Far and Wide, they set out to pick the "30 Best Small Beach Towns" in America. The cream of the crop among "small" beach towns in the nation. "There are big beach getaways like Miami or Myrtle Beach that provide sand and saltwater with a side of flashy nightlife. But sometimes you want to replace the noise of traffic with beach waves breaking against the shore. Small beach towns are the best place to do this."

This best-kept secret is the place to go to escape your worries and avoid people as much as possible."
