GOBankingRates Logo By John Csiszar of GOBankingRates | Slide 1 of 26: If you’re like many Americans, watching majestic sunsets or sunrises, hearing the soothing sound of the ocean and feeling the sand between your toes are all peak experiences. So, why not live by the ocean? The primary problem is simple: Beachfront property is often too expensive.
Or is it? It turns out, America is actually full of cities that can make your dream of living near water come true, at least to some degree.
To narrow down the list, GOBankingRates looked at 112 of the top ocean and lakefront cities in the U.S. based on median listing price, state income and overall affordability, using a variety of metrics. Cities with the highest percentage of leftover income ranked at the top of the survey. While you won’t find celebrity enclaves like Malibu on the list, you will find a wide range of waterfront cities that still remain affordable.
