Travel Maven

A newly released list of the most affordable coastal communities in California has been released from the online database known as Strategistico.

The website combines recent data from the Census, FBI, OpenStreetMaps, and dozens of other sources to create bite-sized lists and studies designed to help citizens better understand what it is like to live in different communities across the country.

They used data from AreaVibes and BestPlaces.net to determine each town’s affordability and created a list of cities and towns that are considered the most affordable in the state of California.

The results have been revealed and it seems like communities from all across the state have made the list.
