This map shows the best beaches in America as determined by Stephen P. Leatherman, also known as "Dr. Beach." Dr. Beach travels the country each year compiling an annual list of the best beaches he visits, which he releases to the general public before Memorial Day weekend (one of the first big beach weekends of the year). The Best Beaches list, which has run every straight since 1991, is based on a 50 criteria. Once a beach reaches #1 on the list, it's retired from appearing again. The Best Beaches list is typically similar from year to year, with at most two or three new beaches appearing. The top beach in America in 2012 was Coronado Beach, in San Diego, California.
