Fun in the Sun: Fairfield County Beaches

FCMB-Beach

Summer is almost here, and I’m once again rounding-up some of Fairfield County’s best beaches, and the rules and fees for admission. In addition to the beach and sound, many also have playgrounds, walking/running trails, picnicking, concession stands, and much more. Be sure to click on each beach name for more details and the most up-to-date information. Between now and Memorial Day weekend, you can still get into a few of the beaches without a pass/fee. Have fun! (Updated May 2017)
