On Major Summer Holiday Weekends there are often special traffic management plans put into place which may restrict access to Atlantic Avenue during certain hours. Guests arriving Memorial Day, July 4th or Labor Day weekends should check with their hotel for details on the best access routes, the quickest entrance and the least inconvenience. Listed at the top of each ad in the FREE Guide Directory is the recommended Beach Access Route for each hotel.
