Were you aware that today is voting day? And with candidates more appealing than most: By the end of Tuesday, March 31, you can vote for Coastal Living magazine’s “Happiest Seaside Town.”
They’re all great places, but be aware that only one of the finalists for top spot is in the Carolinas: beautiful, historic Southport, south of Wilmington, near the mouth of the Cape Fear River.
Here’s what other beach towns are campaigning:
Coronado del Mar, Calif

Get six months of free digital access to The Charlotte Observer
Delray Beach, Fla.
Ocean Springs, Miss.
Tybee Island, Ga.
Right now, residents, businesses and other tourism boosters in Southport and elsewhere are pushing to get voters to weigh-in. Southport, in fact, even made a video to state their case.
Where do you vote? Right here.
