nice little beach
Reviewed roughly 3 years ago
Nice little beach to go to for the day. Rented a paddle boat at a fair price, and the rental guy was awesome. The beachside eats and treats concession had good food. Decent variety for a little concession stand. Id recommend a day here to anyone. Only gave 4 stars because some areas of the beach are a little prickly and weedy. Other than that....my wife and I had a great time. - Agg77
