I was recently back in my home town in NJ and spent the day on the beach. I was impressed as I saw multiple people being pushed down in ‘surf chairs’. I thought it was great that so many families took the time to get chairs that would allow their loved ones to access the beach. Imagine my surprise and delight when at the end of the day I was packing my stuff up and saw that these chairs were provided by the beach! I went home and looked it up and not only does the beach provide them, but they are free of charge. Its just recommended that you make a donation.
I would love to hear about other beaches in other parts of the country that have programs like this.
