Siesta Key Beach Makes Dr. Beach's Best Florida Beach List

Dr. Beach, Florida International University professor Stephen P. Leatherman, was asked to make a list of best Florida beaches for USA Today.

Siesta Key is still receiving attention from Dr. Beach, and readers can vote in a poll to make Siesta Beach No. 1 again—this time for top beach in Florida.

USA Today asked Dr. Beach, who is Stephen P. Leatherman, professor at Florida International University, to come up with the Sunshine State's top 10 beaches that "combine sand, surf and a welcoming sense of community." 

Siesta Key Beach is on it again, from USA Today:

Siesta Key: Last year's winner of Leatherman's "best beach in America" survey, this Gulf Coast barrier island southwest of Sarasota has "the finest white sand in the world."

USA Today is also asking readers to vote in an online poll to make Siesta Key a reader's choice for top Florida beach. The winning beach will be featued in an future USA Today travel story.

You can vote at the USA Today story here, or at this link by Jan. 16, or tweet your pick to @usatodaytravel with hashtag #flabeachtown.
