We've been staying at a townhouse north of the pier for about 10 years. The beach is great, but as others have said, bring your own entertainment. Bocci and cornhole were our entertainment of choice this year, as well as bikes. We were close enough to downtown, yet far enough away, and you really only want to go downtown 1 day.
There is a bit of trash/debris on the beach, more so after yahoo's have their own fireworks display. It gives me something to do, walk the beach and pick up other peoples junk. Don't get me wrong, it's small stuff, like small plastic straw cocktail stirrers.
The beach also has it's share of wildlife. A few years ago, a sea turtle laid eggs right in front of our townhouse. It was cool to see them relocated higher in the dunes.
Yo will need to pay for parking.
