A list of the top ten beaches has just come out, and a Florida beach is in the top spot. That’s according to Stephen Leatherman, also known as “Dr. Beach."

Leatherman, a Professor and Director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International University, named Grayton Beach State Park the number one beach in the country.

90.7’s Talia Blake spoke to Leatherman about his annual list and about the impact the coronavirus pandemic is having on our beach-going.
