    Can walk dog in a field next to parking lot

    If looking for a place to walk your dogs, you can walk them in the field next to the parking lot and can see a little of the beach from afar. But dogs are not allowed to cross the footbridge over to the beach. My husband waited back at the car with our dogs after we walked them and then my daughter and I walked over the footbridge (boardwalk) over to the beach. That is a splendid walk. So wish my husband and our dogs could have enjoyed it too.

    we read that dogs were not allowed on beach and boardwalks but thought it would be possible to walk by the water
