Great information!

Just curious why the city does not work on the public entry to the beach so vehicles can get in. We are staying in a house with beach access but want to drive the beach. We do not have a 4x4. We visit here twice a year and its always a toss up whether we can drive on the beach or not.

Thanks for the report

Always a great event if you are in town for Thanksgiving.
