Great place to hang out. Walk the boardwalk by yourself or with friends. Hit the back trails. Or go swimming. Get there early and avoid the tolls or turn 62 and you can get in free on weekdays.

The beach and boardwalk make for either a relaxing day or a lovely exercise experience. I usually walk a few miles up and down the boardwalk before settling down in my chair with a good book for a few hours. The facilities are always clean...More
