Fairfield County Connecticut beaches for non-residents this weekend

Jump to last reply

I know that Fairfield County CT has some nice beaches that are off-limits to non residents most of the year. OK, technically they are open (wasn't there a legal challenge a while back?), but with fees like $50 for parking and admissions, I consider them not available.
Well, this weekend is supposed to be downright hot, and I need to be in CT anyway, and I was trying to figure out if I could use the beaches without any fees at this time of the year.
I was looking at the website for Darien CT and other towns, and found veiled references to no actual fees for beaches at least until May 1st. What I can't figure out is if the crazy parking fees are still in effect, or if there are other free parking options available near places like Weed Beach or Pear Tree Point Beach in Darien, or other nice beaches in the area.

No, I don't plan on swimming in the 50 degree waters, and I promise not to try to crash the beaches during the summer--honest! Can you give me some info and local details on how to sit and enjoy the sand this weekend?
