We were totally shocked to drive up and find signs posted saying that out of state visitors must pay $50 for a one day parking pass. That's not exactly a warm welcome! We asked a few locals and they said they didn't think anyone would...More

Who knew that Bridgeport had such a great and HUGE beach. It seems to go forever. There is plenty of room and I was there on a busy Saturday. Great for locals.
