You drive right into the parking lot and pay $10 on weekends.
How is the parking at the Jersey beaches? Are there parking lots on the beach and how much does parking generally cost?
The parking lots I've seen down here are usually around that (give or take depending on what the lot is near)
As for traffic, well I haven't been up in that area during this time of the year, but down here (and by here, I mean at the shore, and any roads leading to it) I can't wait for the people of a certain land locked state to get out. You can go the speed limit and do not need to stop at EVERY intersection, a green light at the NJ shore means the same thing as it does in your state (or at least I should hope so), it means go, not stop. The same thing for a two way stop intersection. So please, do not drive alllll the way to the bridge like this, someone just might snap one of these days.
