If you're looking for a beautiful spot in the Garden State, then there is no more beautiful spot than a glorious place in Ocean County, according to Cosmopolitan, and that place is one we are sure you're familiar with.

It's gorgeous beaches and picturesque settings make this place a must visit here at the Jersey Shore. And there is never a shortage of visitors. As a matter of fact, it's a weekend tradition to hear the announcement that this beach is full to capacity. Of course, we're talking Island Beach State Park.

Love Beaches? Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. 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.
