North Beach - the best in the area and FREE!
North Beach is by far the best place to go for summer fun. It is clean, well kept and parking (and admission) is FREE! If the lot is full, continue north as there are plenty of street parking spots (also free) than run directly behind the beach. These spots are actually more convenient to the beach area as you jump out of your car right on to the sand. The parking lot is closer to the snack bar, restrooms and Kids Cove play area.
