It’s not too late to hit the beach!
Now that Labor Day has passed it doesn’t mean you can’t hit the beach. Here are 7 Massachusetts beaches with Free parking after Labor Day. Who says you can’t go to the beach in September? There’s a lot of reasons why you should still pack up the car with your chairs, blanket and coolers and head to one of our beautiful beaches.
If you don’t want to pay the parking price, then now is the time to go.
The cost of being a “beach bum” is getting ridiculous these days. Some beaches charge as much as $35 to $40 to park, and even at that price, there’s no guarantee that you will even get a parking pass before they sell out. There are a lot of folks who don’t even get a chance to go to the beach because of the costs and the availability of access. It’s not unusual for the more popular destinations to sell out of passes days before you want to go.
The best time to go?
For a lot of folks September is the best month to head to the beach. There are tons of reasons why the Fall season is a great time to go. First, as we mentioned, most public beaches offer free parking after Labor Day. That sure beats paying steep prices that you would during the Summer months. You can save that money for something more fun like snacks and ice cream or whatever foods you like to pack in your cooler.
Less beach traffic
There’s less traffic to contend with in September. The hustle and bustle of heading to the beach “in-season” can be challenging and frustrating but not so much “after-season”. If you’re heading to the Cape you can expect less than half the usual traffic congestion. Plus, once you get to the beach, parking will be easier to find.
More blanket space
If you are tired of looking for a perfect space to spread out your beach blanket and put up the umbrella because the beach is packed from shore to sea and back again, Off season beach room is much more plentiful, so you will be able to have more space for all that stuff you lugged to the beach.
