AMI in running for Happiest Seaside Town in USA

Will Anna Maria be declared the happiest seaside town in the United States? Fans of the city will have to wait a few months to find out.

A poll run by Coastal Living magazine named Anna Maria in its 2018 top 10 list of America’s happiest seaside coastal living towns in January.

Voting closed 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 6, but results won’t be published until Tuesday, June 12.

In the week leading up to the poll’s closing, Anna Maria hovered in the fourth-place spot. However, Coastal Living hid its rankings Jan. 3, before the poll closed.

Anna Maria commissioners debated Jan. 25 whether to encourage people to vote for the city and push for the No. 1 spot before arriving at a consensus to sit out the competition.

The other Florida finalist is Vero Beach.

Other cities named include Bellport, New York; Bluffton, South Carolina; Cambria, California; Cannon Beach, Oregon; Cape Charles, Virginia; Hampton, New Hampshire; Ocean City, New Jersey; and Traverse City, Michigan.
