I grew up going to Ocean Beach. When I come back to visit family in Connecticut I love to find a place to listen to the ocean and dip my toes in the water for a few hours. I thought Ocean Beach would be a great place to take my landlocked Midwestern-raised kids, but I was wrong. The $20 parking (weekend fee) seemed extreme, but I paid it since I couldn't think of another public beach to head to at that moment. The place is just run down and there is just no other way to put it. I would have liked to rate it highly for old times' sake, but next visit I will be asking relatives where else I can take the kids that would be a bit more pleasant and less depressing. Best part was leaving and ending up at Fred's Shanty for fried clams!
