This mid-Long Island town stretches to the bays of the southern shores of the island, but it's by no means a summer beach town. Rather, the area is a haven for families and draws a diverse population who move to the town for its schools, and its proximity to healthy job markets and beaches. Baldwin's waterfront park is chock full of amenities like a skate park, roller rink and spray pool. Community boosters are everywhere in Baldwin, helping to keep the area's charm, even as it copes with fast growth. -J.M.
