"Dr. Beach" Names Top 10 Beaches in U.S.

Coastal expert Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman (kinda an ironic name), aka Dr. Beach, a Florida International University professor, came out with his annual list of the best beaches in the United States. And whoopty-doo he named Caladesi Island State Park, i.e. the beach I just visited during my short vacay in Florida, number 1.

Yeah, it doesn't look that nice in person.

See if your favorite beach made the list.
