The criteria

ideal-LIVING focuses on the master-planned community lifestyle. It covers many different geographical regions and wish-list priorities of home buyers interested in that lifestyle.

The coastal category is one of 13 featured in the “Best of the Best 2020 Community Awards.” The proximity to beaches, saltwater and the beauty of coastal living is a major draw for many home buyers, particularly those looking to ditch hectic lives elsewhere.

The desire to live on “beach time” and explore stunning natural surroundings, parks and recreational options is another draw. Fishing and boating often are key, as is the availability of a resort-style lifestyle in one’s backyard.

With flip flops, of course. Without rush-hour traffic.
