So Siesta Beach was voted America’s best beach by Dr. Beach!! Here’s the link to the article in the Sarasota Herald Tribune:

I feel so blessed to be so close to such a beautiful area, with the whitest sand you’ll ever see. Having grown up here–it was a bit of a disappointment to go to other beaches. The sand was always so brown and coarse. There’s no excuse now…you have to visit Sarasota!! You won’t believe the sand.
