From the sky-ride to the Ferris wheel, Seaside is a great place to head with the family, especially as we get ready for summer in Ocean County.

I didn't even mention walking or biking on the boardwalk in the morning. Stop for breakfast on the boardwalk and feel the morning sun while riding or walking. I know at nighttime the boardwalk comes alive, but I'll take the morning all the time on the boards.

Several weeks ago I had you tell me through app chat and email what your favorite ride is on the Seaside Heights Boardwalk, Casino Pier. Woah, this ride was chosen way more than any other ride on the boardwalk. It's a lot of fun.

There are so many things to do on the Seaside Heights Boardwalk. The soft sand, it's not shelly, it feels good walking through the sand. After a day on the beach and heading to the boardwalk at night, with a sun-kissed face with that salt air, it always feels so good. Maybe even a little chilly on a hot summer night. The boardwalk and the rides come alive with the sunsets.

Speaking of sunsets the sunrise is something that is absolutely beautiful in Seaside. Yes, your kids will have to get up early, but believe me, it's worth it.

What is the number one ride on the Seaside Heights Boardwalk, chosen by you?

It goes around in a circle, and backward. It is loud but a good loud with music. Everyone loves it. It's the Musik Express.

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns

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.
