Best Beach in the US??

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It's that time of the year again when a lot of people run to the beach everytime they get the chance. We're not beach people so we don't do that but now that the best beach in the US according to "Dr. Beach" himself is practically in our backyard, I may just ask the husband to check it out. Dr. Beach a.k.a Stephen P. Leatherman is a Florida Intl University professor who comes up with his Top 10 beaches in the nation every year.

The beach is actually part of a park in Clearwater, Florida...the Caladesi Island State Park. Yep, it's part of an island and is only accessible by boat. It takes a 15-minute for a $9 fare boat ride to get to it. Not too many people go to it though probably because the time of stay is limited to 4 hours only.

Aside from the Caladesi Island State Park beach, Dr. Beach has the following in his list for 2008 Top 10 Beaches in the US.

1. Caladesi Island State Park, Clearwater, FL

2. Hanalei Beach, Hawaii

3. Siesta Beach in Sarasota, Fla.

4. Coopers Beach in Southampton, N.Y.

5. Coronado Beach in San Diego

6. Main Beach in East Hampton, N.Y.

7. Hamoa Beach, Hawaii

8. Cape Hatteras, N.C.

9. Cape Florida State Park near Miami

10.Beachwalker Park on Kiawah Island, S.C.


So are you ready for the B-E-A-C-H???
