The tallest building in the U.S. is One World Trade Center at a whopping 1,776 feet, also making it the tallest in the Western Hemisphere, but it's only #6 on the worldwide list. The tallest building on the planet is Burj Khalifa in Dubai standing 2,717 feet high.

After One World Trade Center nabbed the top spot in the U.S., New York City's Central Park Tower (1,550 feet), Chicago's Willis Tower -- formerly Sears Tower (1,451 feet), New York City's Steinway Tower (1,428 feet), and New York City's One Vanderbilt (1,401) round out America's top-five tallest skyscrapers.

The tallest building in the U.S. not located in either New York City or Chicago is Philadelphia's Comcast Technology Center (1,121 feet) -- the 14th tallest building in the country.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
