Known for its Southern charm and hospitality, Mississippi also offers great outdoor recreation on land and water. The state’s southern borders are situated on the Mississippi Sound and Gulf of Mexico, which means plenty of water and beaches for boating, fishing and swimming. In many communities, Highway 90 runs parallel to the coast and offers easy access to beaches. Other beaches are on state islands but also easy to get to by private or charter boat.

Ocean Springs, Long Beach, Bay St. Louis, Waveland and other coast cities have beaches overlooking the Mississippi Sound. The longest stretch of sand and surf is in Biloxi and Gulfport, which have 26 miles of man-made, white-sand beaches. Waves along the beaches are small and mild, blocked by a string of barrier islands 10 to 12 miles from shore. Horn, Cat, Petit Bois, East Ship and West Ship islands are part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. They are bordered by the Mississippi Sound and Gulf of Mexico and have some amazing beaches and potentially big surf. Visitors can only get to the islands by boat, but seasonal ferry service is available to West Ship Island, the most popular of the chain. Dolphins are a common site around the barrier islands.

Waters of the Mississippi Sound are clean but brownish in color. This is because the waters are diluted by other water from the Pascagoula and Pearl rivers, which drain into the sound. Clear blue-green waters can be found in the Gulf of Mexico bordering the barrier islands located off the coast.

Of course, sunbathing and swimming are popular, but when visiting Mississippi beaches the to-do list might include getting in or on kayaks, Jet Skis, sailboats and hydrocycles. The islands are great for shelling, and both coast and island beaches are great for fishing. Part of the mainland beaches are reserved for endangered Least Tern birds. Although people aren’t allowed in these areas, they can get close enough for birdwatching and to take pictures. Because of its higher surf, the islands are great for surfing and boogie boarding.

South Mississippi can be extremely hot and humid, especially in summer, so sunburn, heat rash, heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke are real possibilities. Anyone going to beaches should consume plenty of water and use sunscreen. When not swimming, it is best to wear sunshades and clothes to protect your skin and consider spending time in shaded areas. Some places have vendors renting beach umbrellas. Life guards are on duty in summer on Ship Island, but most beaches are unguarded.

Rhode Island Beaches – Best Beaches in Rhode Island

 Beaches  Comments Off on Rhode Island Beaches – Best Beaches in Rhode Island
Jan 252016
 

This tiny state, with the nickname of “The Ocean State,” has only 1,545 square miles of land area, but more than 400 miles of coastline, one of the highest proportions of land to coast in the US. This means that water sports, rock and shore fishing, and Rhode Island beaches are major state attractions. You’ll find scores of beaches in Rhode Island all along the coast, in the sheltered waters of Narragansett Bay, along the Blackstone River Valley that spreads northwest from Pawtucket, and in inland state parks elsewhere in the state. Most of the beaches in Rhode Island are open to the public, some for a nominal entry fee.

Narragansett Bay, New England’s largest river estuary, undoubtedly has the most sheltered Rhode Island beaches because of its breakwater barrier protection. There are numerous beaches in this sheltered bay, including on its more than thirty islands. They are excellent for novice swimmers and families with children. Narragansett Beach lies at the southern end of the bay, and benefits both from its location on the bay as well as its location on the scenic coastal Route 1A. The lovely mansions of Newport are just a short boat ride away, and just down the road is the historic nineteenth-century octagonal Point Judith Lighthouse that played such an important role in the state’s maritime history. Narragansett Beach also features a more varied and fluctuating surf, unlike the beaches directly facing the ocean. This is a half-mile long public beach with two full-service pavilions, lifeguards, dining concessions, restrooms and changing rooms, and rental cabanas. Narragansett Beach also has picnic areas and a beach access boardwalk. Surfing lessons are available and a number of events are held here, including musical concerts, sand sculpting contests, and a kite festival.

Along the coast, on the western part of the state, are miles and miles of Rhode Island beaches that continue on to the Connecticut coastline. Charlestown Beach and Westerly Beach are two of these. There are numerous vacation rentals available along this stretch of coastline, as well as golfing resorts.

Charlestown Beach is about halfway between Narragansett and Misquamicut Beach, which is near the Connecticut border. Charlestown Beach actually consists of two adjacent stretches of sandthe town beach, which is actually on Ninigret Pond, and Charlestown Breachway State Beach and Campground, located on the ocean. Between the two, you have long stretches of fine white sand, a boat ramp for fishing, and 75 camping sites. You’re also near some of the state’s wildlife refuges, with wonderful marine bird life including the magnificent fish-eating osprey.

The town of Westerly is so named because of its location on the state’s western border with Connecticut. Its Westerly Beach is a public town beach encompassing three acres, and with 300 feet of beach frontage. It adjoins the seven-mile long Misquamicut Beach, and is in close proximity to a number of local golfing resorts and several coastal fishing ponds. Westerly Beach is also within two miles of the only one of the airports in the state with flights to nearby Block Island.

Virtually no state or town beaches in Rhode Island allow pets. If you’re bringing a pet on your Rhode Island vacations and want it to accompany you to the beach, you will need to find pet friendly lodging with access to a private beach.

Mississippi Beaches – Best Beaches in Mississippi

Mississippi beaches have always been a favorite destination when visiting the state. The southern part of the state’s situation along the Gulf of Mexico makes it a sought after and well traveled area for those looking for warm waters, miles of white sand beaches and a place to relax and unwind. The bonus of the southern shores is the close proximity the beaches have to cities such as Biloxi and Gulfport. This makes a vacation in the area even better with the option of a huge amount of things to do. Spend lazy days by the water and then head inland and discover the many exciting things that await such as great Biloxi casinos.

Though a number of beaches in Mississippi did suffer damage from Hurricane Katrina, most have long since bounced back and been reopened. Ship Island Beach is the most popular of beaches Mississippi has. Secluded and scenic, the shores of Ship Island Beach are situated directly on the Gulf of Mexico.

Mississippi Beaches

Great for nature lovers and families there are an abundance of interesting plants and wildlife found in the area. A picnic area creates a perfect outdoor dining area and there are plenty of activities to keep everyone occupied. Fantastic Mississippi fishing, swimming, strolls along the boardwalk and great views from the pier make time spent here fun and relaxing. Note that visitors have to take a short ferry ride to reach the beaches Mississippi boasts in the barrier islands.

Mississippi beaches west of Ocean Springs and Gulfport are the colorful and urban sands of Biloxi Beach. This area is popular with surfers who love the breaks and equally popular with families as fishing and swimming are excellent here. This beaches Mississippi amenities include a picnic area, public showers, concession stands, lifeguards and nearby Biloxi hotels. Parking is available at the beach and there is a pier and boardwalk to enjoy.

Pass Christian-Long Beach is another cluster of beaches in Mississippi. Restrooms, small grocers, a variety of shops and restaurants are in the area making a lot of amenities a breeze to find. Deep south and eclectic, Pass Christian is known to locals as “The Pass” and it is also known as the “Birthplace of Yachting in the South”. Theodore Roosevelt visited the area often to write, sail and spend time with his friends. Anglers favor this area as the fishing is great. This beach area is popular with locals and visitors and is family-friendly. Play in the surf, fish or relax on the beach with a book and take in the grand stretch of sand before you.

Just west of Long Beach lies Bay St. Louis which empties out into the Mississippi Sound. Noted for its pristine beaches and highly regarded restaurants this is also a great area for chilling out by the ocean. This is the highest point along the stretch of the Gulf of Mexico coast and affords terrific views. There is also one of the many Mississippi casinos located in the area, the Hollywood Casino, which is perfect for great evening entertainment.

Though only a small part of the southern end of the state runs along the Gulf of Mexico there are plenty of Mississippi beaches and quiet areas to take advantage of. Even if you’re touring Jackson you can easily take the scenic route south past Natchez and make the drive over to one of the beaches for a day away from hectic urban scramble.

Find Chicago Beaches On Our Map

Map of Chicago Illinois

The beaches are easily one of the top Chicago attractions every summer. Use this map to locate some of the most popular of Chicago’s lake Michigan lakefront beaches. Click anywhere on the map to see a list of the Chicago beach locations and find contact information.

Note: This map does not include all the beaches in Chicago, just the ones we have identified as most popular. Also, the beach locations on the map are approximate. Some have been adjusted to improve the readability of the map page. No liability is assumed for the locations presented here.

The Most Popular Beaches in Chicago include:

The Windy City is home to some of the best beaches in all of the Midwest

While you’re not likely to think of a beautiful beach shore when you picture Chicago, the Windy City is home to some of the best beaches in all of the Midwest. Located on scenic Lake Michigan – the country’s third-largest lake – Chicago beaches act as a pleasant oasis just steps from the urban jungle that is Downtown Chicago. Popular during the sweltering Summer months, the beaches of Chicago are a must-see for Chicago travelers visiting the Windy City from May – October.

For more information on where to find the best beaches Chicago, scroll below and use our helpful Chicago beach map.

*Terms & Conditions: Offers, promotions and rates subject to change and may vary based upon date, length of stay and other factors. Some offers do not include taxes and fees. All offers based on availability and are subject to change without notice.

The Chicago beaches map extends from north to south along the sandy shores of Lake Michigan. The northernmost Lake Michigan beaches include the Juneway Terrace Beach, which is connected to Rogers Avenue Beach – one of the smaller beaches on the Chicago beach map. Rogers and Juneway together make up just over one block of real estate, and offer recreational activities for Chicago travelers that include tennis courts.

Locate Chicago’s the most popular lakefront beaches

Located just south on the beaches of Chicago map is perhaps the most well-reviewed beach in Chicago, the Kathy Osterman Beach. Formerly called “Hollywood Beach”, this Near North Side Chicago beach is populated mostly by families on the north side, and the south side is a predominantly gay-friendly portion of the beach. Known for its smooth sand, clean shores and diverse crowd, this quiet Chicago beach is popular with tourists and locals of all different backgrounds.

A few miles south of the Kathy Osterman Chicago Beach is the Montrose Dog Beach. This pet friendly Chicago beach is regularly filled with furry friends hoping to cool off in the comfortable Lake Michigan water. A favorite with dog-owners and families alike, the Montrose Dog Beach is open year-round, and allows your dog to exercise in a clean and open environment.

The Chicago Beach Map in the Near North Side offers up two of the most popular Chicago IL beaches, North Avenue Beach and Oak Street Beach.

Located on the Gold Coast of Chicago close to prominent Chicago buildings and attractions – including the John Hancock Observatory Tower – Oak Street Beach attracts a slightly more mature crowd than that of North Avenue Chicago Beach. However, that’s not to say this favorite beach in Chicago doesn’t know how to have a good time. Oak Street Beach is clean and spacious, and there are volleyball courts set up throughout for Chicago travelers hoping to squeeze in some exercise on their day trip to the beach.

Northern Chicago and Beach in the Summer

North Avenue Beach is located just three miles north of Oak Street, and has a reputation for being Chicago’s “party beach” on the weekends. There are tons of volleyball courts, as well as a (usually crowded) biking and running path for active Chicago travelers. North Avenue Beach is where locals and tourists visit to “see and be seen”, and is particularly popular with 20-somethings and college students.

Some of the best Chicago IL beaches on the map are located in the South Side of Chicago, where the crowds are somewhat smaller but the scenery is just as beautiful.

A favorite Chicago beach with locals, and a hidden gem most Chicago tourists tend to overlook is Promontory Point. Located near Hyde Park, this man-made point jets out towards Lake Michigan, providing beach-goers with an isolated area to swim or lay out on their smooth rocks. One of the best Chicago sunset destinations, Promontory Point in Chicago is perhaps the most relaxing beach on the Chicago Beaches Map.

Other popular beaches in Chicago just south of Promontory Point include the 63rd Street Beach and Pier in Woodlawn, as well as the South Shore and Rainbow Beaches, respectively.

beach monitoring program – Iowa Department of Natural Resources

 Beaches  Comments Off on beach monitoring program – Iowa Department of Natural Resources
Sep 302015
 

Routine water quality monitoring is conducted at all of the State Park beaches and many locally managed beaches in Iowa. In order to help protect the health of those wishing to recreate at the beaches, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources works with various public health and management agencies throughout the state to inform the public of the most current water quality conditions. Outdoor recreation at beaches in Iowa is typically limited to the time period between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Therefore, most beach monitoring is conducted and standard swimming advisories are issued during this time frame. Results for specific beaches are published as soon as they become available.

For up to date information, call the DNR Beach Monitoring Hotline at (515) 725-3434. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us by email.

o Beaches that have had two or fewer one-time standard (samples over 235 cfu/100 ml) exceedances of the state standard during a running five years will be monitored less frequently. These beaches will be monitored on a weekly basis from the week before Memorial Day through Labor Day. All other state-owned beaches will be monitored from April 15th through October 31st.

Posting of Signs/Advisories

Why monitor beaches?

Swimming in lakes or any other natural body of water involves risks. By far, the greatest risk is drowning caused in part by cloudy water, fast currents, submerged objects, or the lack of lifeguards. Water at Iowas state-owned swimming beaches is monitored to assess the public health risk from waterborne diseases that may result from immersion in the water.

What is the DNR monitoring?

Water samples from the beaches are analyzed for microorganisms, known as bacteria.These indicator bacteria are one-celled organisms visible only under a microscope.High levels of these bacteria indicate that the water has come into contact with fecal material. Indicator bacteria (Bacteria that normally are not pathogenic [disease causing] but serve as indicators of certain types of pollution such as sewage or gasoline spills) are commonly used by state environmental agencies and by the U.S. EPA to determine the suitability of beaches for swimming-type uses.

Can these bacteria make me sick?

The indicator bacteria for which we monitor do not themselves make you sick. These bacteria are easy to collect and analyze and are relatively safe to handle. They are very common in the environment, including lakes and rivers.High levels of these bacteria indicate that the water has come into contact with fecal material and that pathogens or disease-causing microorganisms may be present.

Why doesn’t the DNR monitor pathogens?

Disease-causing organisms, known as pathogens, exist as bacteria, viruses or parasites.Monitoring for these pathogens is expensive and difficult. Large volumes of water are needed to monitor for pathogens because they are present in such small numbers. Many different types of pathogens exist and testing for a single pathogen may not accurately assess the health risk present due to other pathogens. Because indicator bacteria occur in greater numbers than pathogens and are easier to isolate in a laboratory, monitoring for them is more cost-effective.

What are the sources of these bacteria and pathogens?

Fecal bacteria, and sometimes pathogens, are present in the intestines of warm-blooded animals, including humans. They are carried into the water with fecal material. Fecal contamination occurs due to improperly constructed and operated septic systems and sewage treatment plants, manure spills, storm water runoff from lands with wildlife and pet droppings, or direct contamination from waterfowl, livestock, or small children in the water.

Samples are collected weekly at 37 state owned beaches from April 15 through October 31.This period corresponds to the recreational season when the Iowa Water Quality Standards, designed to protect swimming-type uses, is in effect. Water samples are taken at three locations along the beach and at three water depths (ankle-, knee- and waist-deep).The water from these locations is mixed to form one sample, which is placed in a sterilized bottle and taken to a laboratory for analysis.

What levels of indicator bacteria are considered safe?

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has guidelines for the amount of bacteria acceptable in water bodies designated for primary body contact recreation, including swimming and water skiing. In Iowa, these waters are called “Class A waters”. The bacteria level in the water is acceptable if the geometric mean is not greater than 126 colonies per 100 milliliters of water for E. coli bacteria.According to U.S. EPA guidelines, the geometric mean is calculated using at least five consecutive samples collected during a 30-day period. Additionally, Iowa also has a “one-time” standart for E. coli bacteria of 235 colony forming units per 100 milliliters of water.

What factors cause high levels of bacteria?

Fecal contamination of beach water occurs due to improperly constructed and operated septic systems and sewage treatment plants, manure spills, storm water runoff from lands with wildlife and pet droppings, or direct contamination from waterfowl, livestock, or small children in the water. In Iowa, rain appears to be one of the most important factors in generating high levels of bacteria.Surface runoff after a heavy rainfall may transport high levels of fecal bacteria to the water at the beach. The rain also increases the sediment in the water causing it to be murky. Since bacteria are destroyed by sunlight, murky water aids in their survival.

What are the potential illnesses associated with swimming? Thousands of people swim at Iowa’s beaches every year and most of them do not get sick. However, children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems have an increased risk of becoming ill when in contact with contaminated water.A variety of diarrheal diseases, and other infections such as skin, ear and respiratory infections, are associated with swimming in contaminated water. Diarrhea is one of the most common illnesses associated with swimming. Diarrhea is spread when disease- causing microorganisms from human or animal feces get into the water. You can get diarrhea by accidentally swallowing small amounts of water that contains these microorganisms. To date, the DNR has received no verified reports of illnesses caused by swimming or water skiing in Iowas waters. However, these illnesses could be under-reported because the symptoms are so common and people can be infected by these pathogenic microbes through other means, such as from contaminated meat, not washing their hands after using the bathroom or changing diapers.

How can I avoid getting sick?

Avoid swimming after a heavy rainfall when indicator bacteria levels are generally higher and the water is murky. Avoid swallowing the water. Young children swimming at the beach can leak fecal bacteria and associated pathogens from their diapers, so change your childs diapers often and visit bathrooms frequently. If you or your child has diarrhea, please stay out of the water because you may contaminate the water with fecal material. Although swimmers with diarrhea do not mean to contaminate the water, this is often how disease is spread.

Can I eat fish from waters with high levels of fecal contamination?

Yes, high levels of indicator bacteria or pathogens have no influence on the quality of fish for human consumption. While alive, the fish is protected from water-borne contaminants by the skin, scales and mucus covering its body. Proper fish cleaning, rinsing, refrigeration and cooking should always be used.
