Overview

"Evidence that beautiful beaches still abound along America’s coastlines. . . . The book is filled with great photos that just might make you start planning your next excursion to the shore."--Honolulu Star-Bulletin

"A beautiful, full-color tribute to the beaches and their seas."--Miami Herald

Travel with Stephen P. Leatherman (a.k.a. Dr. Beach) along the U.S. coastline to discover hundreds of spectacular beaches--from the wild and rocky shores of Maine to the jewels for swimming and surfing in Hawaii--one of them bound to fit your personality.
 America’s Best Beaches, a full-color illustrated guide to 650 major public recreational oceanic beaches, describes all the national winners of Dr. Beach’s famous annual list of Top 10 Beaches. It also surveys the best beaches regionally for various activities: swimming, walking, surfing, sports, wilderness recreation, city action, and novelty events.
 More than an access guide, this book helps you
· compare key features--such as water temperature and quality, surf, and sporting opportunities--of beaches on the Atlantic, Gulf, and Pacific coasts,
· recognize less obvious advantages (city access, good beachcombing) and disadvantages (overcrowding, dangerous "rip" currents) of individual beaches, and
· identify the best beaches for you, using Dr. Beach’s 50 rating criteria.
Leatherman also provides state by state and beach by beach local contact information for access to detailed tourism materials.
 Grab your towel, put on some sunscreen, and join the nation’s top "beachologist" for an invigorating tour of America’s Best Beaches.

Stephen P. Leatherman, professor and director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International University in Miami, Florida, is an internationally recognized expert on beaches. He has written 14 books and more than 200 scientific articles on his lifelong passion. Each year he announces his list of the Top 10 Beaches on the NBC Today Show during the Memorial Day weekend. Dr. Beach has been featured on Travel Channel’s World’s Best Beaches and on more than 60 television programs, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, and Live with Regis and Kathie Lee, and on the Discovery Channel and Travel News Network and has been profiled in such magazines as People, Life, and Southern Living.
