According to Tripadvisor’s 2017 Traveler’s Choice survey, Florida captures 1st place for the best beaches in the United States, including Hawaii. Florida now has nine beaches on the top twelve list. That’s really good news for Florida. Unfortunately, the good news will bring bad news to the existing residents, bringing more seasonal travelers, tourists and new residents which will undoubtedly compound the local traffic congestion. I say, “Urgh!!”
Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota reclaimed the 1st place title from Clearwater Beach, which came in 4th this year, while St. Pete Beach jumped to 3rd place from the previous year’s rankings.
The top Florida beaches are well known for their sugar like white sand and beautiful clear aqua colored waters.
