Top Beach in America - Yay Florida! (Don't forget to enter the Recipe Exchange Contest!)








I heart Florida.
Caladesi Island State Park, near Clearwater/Dunedin, FL was named America's top beachy by Dr. Beach is STUNNINGLY beautiful. Like most beaches along the gulf side of Florida, the sand is white, fine and soft and the water is breath-taking. You can only access this piece of paradise via private boat or ferry. Dolphins are regular visitors and you can kayak through the mangroves... or just sip your pina colada and sink your toes into that snow white sand.

I'm off to pack my battery-operated blender and swimsuit... is anybody with me?

I have been to Caladesi Island, it truly is a beautiful park. They also have a doggy beach section, bonus for us dog people. Ft. Desoto south from there is also very nice. The only down side to living in Florida is that you're not on vacation to enjoy the beaches. Instead you spend your days inside working. No complaints here though, at least the view is great.

I agree with preppy pugs. I have NEVER been to Caladesi and I live so close to it. We do get to the beach occasionally, just never out there... I guess we take it for granted. Life is great though in Fla, so hopefully you will get here soon.

BTW, DO NOT watch Jon and Mary Kate plus 8(or whatever it is called) with your BF. That would scare anyone. Hee hee..


It is hard to live on a boat cruising the Caribbean with 8 kids!

This place is beautiful. Love the pictures. We lived in New Port Richey just north of here - the beaches in this area are just breath taking.

Enjoy!
