This was a nice place when I was a kid. Now it is a dump. The noise is unbearable, the beach has become dirty, and the commercial side has gone to the dumps. If you are a teenager , then you might find this somewhat exciting, or appealing. If you are a grown up and still like this place, you might want to take a trip to a real beach, or perhaps seek help. Between Labor day and Mem Day, the traffic is always insane. It is a good place to study human primitive behavior, as you watch the kids interact. Any notion of sanity is gone.
