Live every day like you’re on vacation in these American coastal towns with spectacular views and bargain home prices.

Fintech company SmartAsset compared data for 218 beach towns and put together a list of the most affordable 50. They were ranked according to their median home value, average number of rooms per house, median monthly property taxes paid and monthly housing costs.

When compiling this list we also factored in some other stats — taken from Census Bureau’s 2019 five-year American Community Survey — as well as some amenities that make each city so great to retire in.
