  14. First of all, thank you for such an organized list!! Incredible. But more importantly, I’m from out of state (upstate NY) and will be looking to go to the beach a couple times this summer – how do I buy a beach badge? Do I buy online and get a ticket to put on my dashboard? Do the badges include parking or is that separate? I’ve only been in the offseason so it’s completely different. I’d be visiting the northern beaches — no further south than Barnegat Light — if that helps. Thanks in advance for any advice! 🙂

    • Hello
      If going for the day can purchase badges at the beach. parking is not usually included in the badge price.
      You can also check the website of the town you are going to for purchasing a week or season badge
