Was just thinking the same thing... Pretty on par with so many questions on here that could be answered with a simple Google search. Which would actually have taken less of a person's time than coming here and starting a new thread.

Overpriced. Drive to DE and spend a day at the beaches. You won't regret it.

Its not overpriced for a couple or single person who wants to go to the beach for a few days and doesn't want to put up with all the traffic... Not Everybody wants to drive everywhere....
