Suggest a traveler best check on local events. We traveled there without checking local event and all of down town area was blocked off do to a large event running race. We could not get to the beach so went on up North.

We stopped to check out the beach late this afternoon. The beach was clean, the water was clean and clear. It’s pretty here.

Adequate free parking makes this place very cool. The beach is OK but not Florida. Nice facilities, pavilions, BBQ, tables, etc. The Statue of Liberty is a bit quirky but cute. You can have a pleasant afternoon here. It’s free.
