The cooler, more normal, weather is back in New York State and as you put the pants back on an tuck the shorts away, perhaps you found a few dollars cash in your pocket? Imagine the next time that happens, there are millions in there? That's basically the same feeling that a person in New York got when they discovered a record setting amount of cash was coming their way.

Do you play the lottery often? Or do you wait for the jackpots to get up to the record size before you decide to spend that $2 to have a shot at incredible wealth? The current Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots are getting rather large lately. However, they are tiny compared to what a lucky player in New York was able to win!

A Queens man is the winner of a record-setting Mega Millions jackpot. The pot reached 476-million-dollars in April, but 71-year-old Howard Beach resident Johnnie Taylor chose to take the cash value, receiving a lump sum of more than 157-million-dollars after taxes.

The summer is almost here and it sure would be nice to have some extra cash on hand to spend. Imagine if you won the lottery and could be VIP for everything! In fact, with that kind of cash, you can plan your own concerts!

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.
