Nantasket Beach: Park All Year for $35!

Nantasket Beach Goers - Don't pay $8 - $12 to park every time you want to soak up the sun!  Get a season pass for only $35!

If you don't know, Nantasket Beach in Hull is actually a MA owned DCR park.  What does this mean?  If you have a MA DCR Parks Pass, you can park there for free whenever.  The pass costs you $35 if you are a MA resident.  If you are aged 62 or older - the pass is FREE!  All you have to do is ask for it!

Internet purchasing should premier this spring, but if you want to be ahead of the game, you can mail in your application.  It's easy.  It's quick.  I mailed my in about a month ago and got it the following week.  You can get all the information by CLICKING HERE ON THE DCR PARKS PASS PAGE.

You can also get "free" parking at the following MA state parks and beaches which charge a parking fee.  While you are out exploring all these great state parks this summer with your parking pass, be sure to check out the Parks Passport program.  This is a free program that lets you get a stamp at various state parks.  Kids get a big kick out of "stamping their passport" all over creation.
