If you do not want to take a ferry and if you want to walk the sand alone or in peace, try a visit in October .....I did swim. Watch the birds - all a slice of heaven.

The header on this article claims dogs are allowed on the beach 9/15. Not true. The beach is open to dogs October 15th - May 15th. Remember to clean up after your dog, or we will lose those privileges, too.

July 4th for 4-6 weeks, depending on heat/ humidity. The hotter it is, the earlier they appear and the longer they're around.
