When looking for the right location to move to in Western New York, it’s important to keep one thing in mind, especially during the summer: How far is it from the beach? If you move to the Grand Island area, you’ll be in close proximity to several of the best beaches in the region! There are plenty of places to cool off during the summer in both Erie and Niagara counties, and Town Hall Terrace on Grand Island is just a short drive away from them all.
Erie County Beaches
The closest beach to Grand Island is Beaver Island State Park. It’s actually located right on Grand Island! It’s more than your average beach, however, as it provides canoe and kayak launches, bike trails and access to fishing, boating and picnic areas – and, of course, the sandy beach. No matter what you want to do, just remember you’re closer than ever to fun in the sun!
Right outside the city of Buffalo in Hamburg is the hidden gem of Woodlawn Beach State Park. All you have to do is follow the wooden pathway among trees and nature, and you’ll reach the secret spot! Cool off in Lake Erie, play some volleyball, or just enjoy the gorgeous view.
Going a bit further south, Evangola Beach is the third state park beach for residents to visit. This park offers plenty of campsites plus convenient amenities, including snacks and treats from the snack bar, a camp store for campers to stock up and a natural sandy beach that offers great swimming. It may be the furthest park from Grand Island, but it’s definitely worth the drive!
Niagara County Beaches
Olcott Beach and Krull Park provide endless fun for the whole family on Lake Ontario. Krull Park offers picnic areas and covered pavilions available to rent for special events, plus two playgrounds and even a splash park. It’s a park you can enjoy year round, too, with events planned all throughout the year! Come summertime, you can enjoy the waterfront and beach, not to mention the beautiful views that Olcott Beach has to offer.
Residents of WNY can also enjoy Wilson-Tuscarora State Park all year long, even in the winter! Cool off by taking a dip in the water and relaxing under the sizzling sun, or stay active and go on a hike on the four-mile nature trail. In the winter, the trail is open for snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.
