blue waters, brilliant white sand and sun-kissed skies grace Florida's shores
with a timeless beauty and ageless appeal. It's no wonder that from the Panhandle
to the Keys, Florida's magnificent beaches are worldwide favorites, and are perpetually
rated among the top 10 in the United States. University of Maryland professor
and coastal geomorphologist Stephen Leatherman, otherwise known as "Dr. Beach,"
travels the nation's 650 beaches and ranks them annually. His evaluations are
based on 50 criteria, including soft sand, clear blue water, abundant wildlife,
and far-reaching views. Florida has continued to capture stellar ratings since
the survey began in 1991, and its beaches make up nearly half of this year's overall
best in the country.
