And the winner is… Ocean City, New Jersey!
Ocean City emerged victorious in Coastal Living’s inaugural Beach Madness Bracket – like the traditional March Madness basketball bracket – to determine “The Best Beach in America 2016.”
The competition featured thirty coastal states, with one beach from every state. Ocean City defeated Huntington Beach, California, in the finals. It garnered over 100,000 votes, according to an announcement from the city. Ocean City beat Ogunquit Beach (Maine), Hammonasset State Park (Connecticut), Crescent Beach (Rhode Island) and Tybee Island (Georgia) to reach the final round.
