Rhode Island Beach Passes Are Officially On Sale
The temperatures have crept above 70 several times already this spring, so I know everyone has started thinking about the beaches – and in Rhode Island, the Department of Environmental Management has, too.
The RI DEM says season passes and daily flex passes for all state beaches are on sale for residents, non-residents, and seniors.
But even though you can get your passes, there is still no word on how packed those beaches – and more importantly, those parking lots – are going to be allowed to get. Not that parking lot rules kept many beachgoers away last season.
Tickets start as low as $6 a day for residents and only Misquamicut State Beach will see any ticket price changes.
Plus, all passes will be tied to the driver's vehicle registration, so actually having a physical beach pass to keep track of is a thing of the past.
If hanging on the beach is how you want to spend your entire summer, maybe getting a job at one of those state beaches is a better way to go.
DEM is actively hiring lifeguards, groundskeepers, parking attendants and more for state beaches, parks and campgrounds. What better way to make some money and enjoy the great outdoors this summer? Not to mention, working in the fresh air is probably one of the safest working environments you can get right now. It's a win-win.
So though the seasonal rules and regulations for state beaches have yet to be determined, you can be prepared to hit the sand by getting your passes or purchasing gift certificates for the beach lover in your life.
