Nothing says summer like a trip to the beach. But, did you know that parking is now free at beaches in Connecticut? Well, kinda. The Passport to Parks program, which began in February 2018, now adds a $10 fee that is applied to your registration, registration renewal, and plate transfer. Therefore, it’s easier now than ever before to have a beach day. But, be sure to get there early — as you can imagine, the parking lots can fill up quickly.
