ROWAYTON, Conn. -- Rowayton has been named the "Sixth Happiest Seaside Town" in America by Coastal Living Magazine, according to its website .

The magazine says the village at the mouth of Connecticut's Five Mile River "is straight out of a Norman Rockwell illustration" and cites its appeal to artists over the decades.

Rowayton, a section of Norwalk, has about 4,000 residents, who enjoy the convenient pizza places and ice-cream spots.

The magazine also gives a shout-out to the Norwalk Inn on the Norwalk River as a place to stay, even though it's a 10-minute drive from Rowayton.

The magazine's Top 10, in descending order, are:

10. Pescadero, Calif.

9. La Jolla, Calif.

8. Pa'ia Town, Maui

7. Kennebunkport, Maine

6. Rowayton, Conn.
