    The state encouraged beach visitors to buy season passes online because these passes won't be available at beach entrance booths on weekends or holidays.

    The environmental department says there are new concession menus and retail services, such as beach chair and umbrella rentals.

    Beaches within state parks also opened for the season on Saturday. There are no fees to access beaches within state parks.
