Is there a charge for parking? And, is the beach " decent" in the area? Thanks.
Yes there is a charge in the 1000 car and other psrking lots . They charge more on weekends .I often find free parking either early or after after 8 PM if going to the boardwalk . OC provides great and cheap buses on the entire 10 mile main road . $2 for a 24hour pass . They also have parking off the island that they provide buses . I like the beach closer to say second Street rather than the South end .Close to boarwalk and very clean restrooms . I will be going to OC in a few weeks and will try to provie more info .
Yes, there is a fee for parking. The beaches are decent, but it's always windy.
Yes there is a charge. The beach is okay but the waters can be rough. Watch the riptide.
Well, depending on your timeframe- this may work for you. There's a little place to eat down there called the Frog Bar. It is nestled in with a bunch of little shops directly across from the lifesaving station museum. The Frog Bar serves up some really schweeet sandwiches and stuff and has an excellent view of the inlet. It's right behind Harrison's. The Frog always used to validate your parking underneath them and in the little lot just to the bottom of the ramp leading up to the Frog. I know that back when it was called the Red Eyed Frog they gave you four hours. Provided the new owner still validates, it may be fewer hours. You may want to call them first. It's worth a try- even if they only validate for two hours it would provide you with enough time to take in the museum and get a nice bite to eat and a cold one (or more) while enjoying the view of the inlet. Hope this works for ya man! Have fun down there.
The best beaches on the east coast in my humble opinion. There's a boardwalk that starts at 28th St. and ends at the inlet where the museum is located. The beach at that end is a hike compared to midtown. So if walking is a problem, park on a side street after 30th street. Drive to the dune, empty the car and then park. There are life guards starting memorial day. Feel free to ask for further information.
