SEASIDE, OR (KPTV) -

The secret is out about Seaside.

The popular tourist town on the Oregon coast is one of 10 finalists in the running for the title of Coastal Living magazine's 'Happiest Seaside Town in America.'

Seaside is the only city in the Pacific Northwest to make the list.

The unranked list also includes towns such as Portland, Maine; Hermosa Beach, California; and Hilo, Hawaii.

In order to come up with the list, Coastal Living looked at data such as the number of sunny days, air quality, healthiness of beaches, commute times, crime ratings and walkability, among others.

The magazine is seeking votes for the title of happiest coastal town through Jan. 25, with a winner to be announced in April.
