Million Dollar Beach offers gorgeous surroundings, plenty of room for tanning, clean shores, and a family-friendly environment—it’s the perfect weekend or weekday getaway for you and your loved ones, and the picturesque mountain scenery of the southern basin provides a scenic and relaxing vista while soaking up the rays. In a roundup of the top riverfront and lakefront beaches in the U.S., Fodor’s cites its 51 acres, 1,700 feet of golden sand and large swimming area as attributes that helped earn Million Dollar Beach its spot at #11.
