Many of the country’s well-known second-home destinations — think Nantucket, Cape Cod, East Hampton — are not exactly known for their diversity. But what if that’s something that is important to you as a potential buyer?

The Escape Home worked with Redfin to identify which second-home markets in the U.S. are the most diverse. The real-estate company determined the metro areas with the greatest amount of non-white second-home owners by using the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act to pull data about racial makeup from the census and second home mortgages.

Here’s what The Escape Home’s Danielle Hyams found:

Pine Bluff, Arkansas

64.71% of second-home owners are nonwhite.

Pine Bluff has an abundance of outdoor activities that are accessible year-round, like kayaking along the world’s longest bayou, which stretches 364 miles to Louisiana. It’s a historically rich location with serious civil rights credentials and deep connections to the worlds of jazz, blues and gospel music.
