The United States is home to some of the most diverse geography in the world. As a result, this country boasts some of the most beautiful and iconic beaches in the world. From the coastal regions of Florida and California, to the lakes of Montana and Ohio, American beaches are as diverse as Americans themselves. The French Broad River in North Carolina occupies three spots on this list alone, while the famous Coney Island in New York made its way in as well. Check out the Top 10 US Beaches of 2017 below:
