La Jolla ranked fourth on the list, preceded by three East Coast towns.
The magazine called La Jolla one of the “best places to work and play by the sea.”
Criteria for the list included well-being index, percentage of sunny days and healthiness of beaches. The standard of living and financial well-being of the locals were also taken into account.
La Jolla is known for its spectacular views, gorgeous homes and pristine beach areas. Though the neighborhood had an issue with some unusual smells in the area, Coastal Living didn’t seem to care.
The only other California town to grace the list was Pescadero, just north of Santa Cruz.
