We are driving up from Palm Beach County tomorrow for a (finger's crossed) Sunday Mar 15 7:43pm Discovery launch.
We've been up there before -along the river, Space View Park, etc...but this time we'd like to try Jetty Park.
With a weekend launch, peak season, and great bach weather...I know the beach is going to be crowded.
Any hints as to when would be best to get to Jetty Park without having to be burnt out in the sun all day, or be turned away whenthe 1000 car parking lot is full?
I sawe an old post mentioning bicyling from a point south of the park, but no further description was provided.
Does anyone know a place where we can park south of Jetty and bicycle in?
Hints? (I assume bicyling into the park would also allow us to get out of the area fast- a nice advantage with 1000 cars all leaving at the same time)
Best Time of day to get there? (in time to get a good viewing place on the fishing pier?..I'm short!!)
Any good "take out" food places (ribs??!!) driving toward Jetty Park so we don't have to eat concession food?
If not: when does the concession stand close during night launches?
And lastly, not critical, but a possibility:
I see dogs are allowed in the Jetty Park camping area, but not on the beach.
If we decide to bring our dog (and would get there early enough to park at Jetty Park itself), are dogs allowed on the pier?
