Local Beach Named Top Spot

JULY 12, 2005 -- A small Brunswick County beach has made a top ten list.

Dr. Stephen Leatherman, also known on the internet at Dr. Beach, issues an annual list of America's Best Beaches.

Leatherman says Holden Beach is one of the top ten places to go coastal with your kids. He says it has everything a family could want for a vacation including swimming, fishing and rest and relaxation.

Dr. Beach uses 50 criteria to rate beaches. His favorite destination in North Carolina is Ocracoke.
