Every summer since 1991, Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, aka Dr. Beach, has released his list of the best US beaches. He travels the country throughout the year judging beaches based on the water and sand quality, the facilities available, and safety. Last year Florida’s own, Siesta Beach, took first place. Beaches cannot be ranked again after they were named America’s Best Beach, so Siesta Beach is no longer on the list. However, once again a few local Florida beaches have made the top 10 list, making these the perfect places to take a Fort Lauderdale kayak rental.
