I just put together a list of the 2018 Beach Badge prices for this upcoming season and some of the beaches are pretty pricey.

So it got me thinking, why are we paying to use the beach at all?

This is something that exists because of nature and we are just utilizing our natural environment.

When I am charged to go into water parks or even pools, I do understand because it is a man-made spot that we created to enjoy.

But in my opinion, the beach is just something that is being used to make an extra buck.

What do you think? Comment below!
