Wide concrete walk allows for walking, running, biking, or, you can choose to walk along the sand. Plenty of pay for parking sites available

We had a great time enjoying the parades and meeting new people. We experienced the morning parade, sat on the beach during the afternoon, and enjoyed the evening parade!
