People who live here in Massachusetts have run across someone, I'm sure who either thought they were being funny, witty, or intelligent by saying something really dumb to us who live here.

One of my big pet peeves is how some people even say the name of our state, it is not that hard to say the right way, but there are those out there who can mutilate saying Massachusetts.

Doing a scenic tour in your fanny pack shouting “Pahhhk the cahhh in Hahhhvahhhd Yahhhd.”
First of all, not all of us have that type of accent. It makes you look and sound dumb.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
