USA Today Top 10 List: Sanibel Among Best Florida Beach Towns

By: Lauren Tjaden


The National Weather Service tweeted that today there’s a 115 degree temperature difference between Key West, Fla., and Great Falls, Minn. This goes a long way toward explaining why so many folks migrate to the Sunshine State in winter.

The question is which Florida beach town to visit.

To help snowbirds decide which Florida shores are the sweetest, USA Today asked “Dr. Beach”— aka Florida International University professor Stephen P. Leatherman – which 10 destinations boast the perfect combination of sand, surf and community.

To no one’s great surprise, the famed coastal expert included Sanibel Island among his picks, citing its stellar shelling. He also noted the Island has no stoplights and strict building codes that limit new structures to two stories.

Check out more info from Sanibel’s visitor’s services. This getaway just might have your flip-flops written all over it!
