Everything is better at the beach, am I right?  Some friends invited us last minute to go to the beach last Saturday.  It’s a little bit of a drive from  where we live, but doable, so we were like HECK YES! BRING IT!  It could not have been more perfect…Now I’m a beach snob, but over the last few years I have been severely humbled.  Every other beach we’ve visited up till now has been an utter let down…you couldn’t even call them a “beach” more like muddy sand near a dirty lake.  So when we arrived to this beach where there were actually little wave breaks, I was like OMG  a “REAL” beach hahaha.  Here’s a tip, if you are in the Houston area (obviously not for the beaches) and you are aching for a beach day, go to SURFSIDE, or CRYSTAL BEACH.

SURFSIDE—Thing to know

You can park right on the sand-no parking and “lugging all of your stuff” crap.

Parking is $12 but good for the entire year!

You can also rent beach houses for a decent price that are RIGHT on the beach

There are no grills, but we dug a pit and bbq some hot dogs

There are restrooms

Bring lots of your own water

Parking is cash only
