If you are in the Mid-Atlantic region it is a good summer time place to visit. Retirees are moving from New York and New Jersey so it is getting crowded and traffic is better in Fall or Spring.

Come here every year with the family and always enjoy our time. Great beach where you can almost always spot schools of dolphins right off the shore. Gets a little crowded at the peak of the summer but not so bad that you can’t enjoy...More
