People treating the area nicer and clean up after themselves, I go around picking up other people’s trash, the state spends good money cleaning up after people when all they have to do is walk a few hundred feet and clean up after themselves. It’s disgraceful.

The beach is awesome, the smell of ocean salt is awesome, and it's one of the best vacation destinations in the state.
