Cinco de Mayo is all about the celebration of the day and the Margarita. Margarita's are the most popular "thing" for celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Many of our favorites have their own Margarita with special juice blends, the classic and original, and many others to try.

Several favorites for celebrating Cinco de Mayo are the appetizers to the 7-layer taco dip. Taco's and burritos, corn salsa, and nachos and cheese are just some of the favorites of New Jersians on this special day. I know several people that have parties with their very own menu and recipes. They make their own margarita recipe and it's superb every year. Happy Cinco de Mayo.

Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
