I try to stay away from the downtown beaches because they can get a bit crowded but Oak street can be really delightful if its not too packed. The restaurant adjacent to the beach is surprisingly good and its a much more controlled crowd compared to North Ave.

If I'm not at North Avenue Beach, you can find me here during the summer months. Like all downtown beaches, it can get a little bit crowded, but this one also has a little more charm than it's bigger, more popular northern cousin.
