Boston, Massachusetts, July 25, 2016 – What is America’s favorite beach? While there are many opinion-based responses to this question, Stacey Sao, the master researcher behind recreational information hub Tipspoke, decided to get an unbiased, fact-based answer. Following a uniquely rigorous 3-step process (details below) with Google Consumer Surveys, Tipspoke uncovered the results for the favorite beaches in the US to be as follows:
There were also 5 notable runner-ups that made the extended list: La Jolla, CA; Pismo Beach, CA; Long Beach, CA; Ocean City, NJ; Outer Banks, NC; and Virginia Beach, VA.
The combination of three attributes makes this survey uniquely unbiased and representative of popular opinion. First, it was not limited to any specific readership (i.e., not subscribers to a travel website), but rather distributed broadly across the US through the power of Google Consumer Surveys. Second, it did not offer a list from which people could choose; instead, it offered an open question for the respondent to fill in their “favorite” beach without any aid or bias. Third, the survey was published randomly to thousands of adults in the US and ran until over one thousand responses were tabulated.
