Hilo is in the running alongside Capitola and Hermosa Beach, Calif.; Fairhope, Ala.; Portland, Maine; Rehoboth Beach, Del.; Seaside, Ore.; Stuart, Fla.; Sturgeon Bay, Wis., and Sullivan’s Island, So. Carolina.

Readers can vote online from today through 10 p.m. on Jan. 25 to determine the winner of this year’s tally, which will be featured in the May issue of Coastal Living.

The list of candidates is covered in February issue, which is now online, and will be available on newsstands Friday.
