    I'm not gonna say where, but there are plenty of little legal nooks and cranny's to park close to the sand with no meters.

    Yeah I sometimes you gotta be a ealry bird to get them . Plus weekends during the day its a family outting so All the extra stuff you gotta lug to the beach I rather pay for the parking pass. And it can be used on any car so the wife can use it during the week if she takes off and its a easy walk with 3 kids and all the beach stuff she takes

    delaware you pay to park, up to 25cents for 10 minutes, or you can buy a $175 parking pass, the state parks charge to go on all of their beaches, between $5 and $8 a day, or $65 a season..at least most the time that money stays in the parks and is used on the beaches, why should you expect anything to be free anymore,
    Outer Banks has free parking...Everywhere

    I see you're from Monmouth County. Well don't be alarmed, Bradley Beach has been dealing with this since the 1920's.

    From Wikipedia- "It was the first location in the United States to charge sea bathers for beach access when it minted its own tin badges in the 1920s."

    $90 is a bit much though. I believe in my town it's $33 for a beach badge if you buy it in the winter (for the upcoming summer). yea, it's annoying, but it's money going toward cleaning up the town after the bennies leave on labor day.

    imho charging $8 for a sandwich at Starbucks or $50 for parking for an hour is way more criminal than $50 for a full season of beach access. go figure

    Zach,

    I believe the section you are referring to is the block between 49th & 50th which is the ocean pines beach club - that brown building north of the gateway - which O.P. residents pay to be a part of - gives them a parking lot and i think showers and a snack bar - they own the Lot and the Building but DO NOT own the beach
    I'm betting the guy you had a run-in with also thinks the ocean pines home-owners association is a great idea too.
    Ocean Pines is not even in Ocean City it's on the mainland

    Man,you would think for 1 year they would drop the price.Looking at some of these prices for a badge is ridiculous..

    It's against my religion to pay to get on the beach. How can you privatize the ocean? The northeast is one massive prison with entirely too many laws and taxes. In North Carolina, beaches are non-jettied, beautiful and free to the public. New York and New Jersey are a nightmare in the summer and it's sad.
