I grew up going to the beach in Fairfield every Summer. Long Island Sound in this area is absolutely beautiful. The water is warm during the summer, and since it's in the sound, you can enjoy the experience of low tide even more.

I enjoyed my time at Jennings Beach. The sand (at least away from the water) is nice and comfy. Also, there is a snack bar that serves lunch and frozen treats. There is a large pavilion that hosts events. I recommend this for anyone. You...More
