Natural Feature
“A close drive to a large beach. It can be crowded and is popular with teens and young adults. Great in the evening for a sunset walk. You can walk east down Long Beach, which is always a nice treat. This beach is also not far from a favorite local ice cream shop called Four Seas, a very cute Old County Store and a big playground across the street from that store. Keep in mind there is a $20 a day parking fee collecting until 4:45pm.”
