Atlantic City, New Jersey took the top spot on the list.

It’s no secret that owning a vacation home in a beach town is a dream for American homeowners across the country. That’s why Redfin released a ranking of the 15 cities where it’s most affordable to turn that dream into a reality. And at the top of the list is Atlantic City, New Jersey.

With a median home sale price of $52,250, Atlantic City makes it affordable for prospective homeowners to purchase their beach house. And with 27.6 percent of homes on the water, the city is appealing to a wide variety of consumers.

“Atlantic City and its surrounding beach towns have so much to offer someone looking for a vacation home,” said Redfin real estate agent Kimberly Mogan. “Not only does Atlantic City boast some of the finest beaches on the east coast, including an iconic boardwalk, the town offers glitzy nightlife, beautiful casinos, restaurants and an impressive lineup of year-round events. It’s a perfect home away from home for someone who thrives in an action-packed city.”

Atlantic City isn’t the only notable beach town that made Redfin’s ranking of the 15 most affordable beach towns for vacation homes. Miami, Florida; Clearwater, Florida; West Palm Beach, Florida and Daytona Beach, Florida round out the top five. Other cities—outside of Florida—that made the cut include Corpus Christi, Texas; Norfolk, Virginia; Charleston, South Carolina and Oxnard, California.
