Got there very early and they were raking and cleaning it. So much to do in Salisbury from running to biking and hiking.

We stopped by here quickly after a whale watch nearby in Newburyport. We hadn't been for years. We were instantly greeted by trash all over the beach. People buried diapers and wipes, cigarette butts littered the sand, and everything else the beach go-ers didn't carry...More

We got shut out of the Salisbury Beach State Reservation today so we headed to the other end in Salisbury. There are a number of bars and "attractions" fronting/near the beach, a number of them seem to have seen better days. There are no facilities,...More

I believe that Joe's Playland is open year round. Now, it's open on weekends and during school vacations. On weekends, it opens at 5:00 PM on Fridays and 10:00 AM on Saturdays and Sundays.

I would call Salisbury Beach State Reservation Campground, they will be able to either answer the question or let you know who can. I've sat on the beach in November and watched the horses being ridden on the beach.
