It's one thing to have it as a beach event when the entire eastern shore of your state IS a beach! But you have to get creative when we live in OH. Besides, from what Andy said, it sounds like you are limited to a specific area during a specific time period. Either that, or you do it when you want, where you want, and make sure you have a look-out keeping watch for the police!

If you have it at a home/lodge/metropark picnic shelter you can have it when you want on (mostly) your own terms. No alcohol allowed in the public parks. Since we held it annually at a residence we could start when we wanted, party as late as we wanted, and drink on-premise. I suppose if we had really wanted to cook those babies in the sand someone would have trucked in 3 tons of sand. After all, the street we live on now did just that for our "Beach Party" block party one year. After all, the kids needed to be able to build sand castles! Seriously, there was a huge pile of sand in the cul-de-sac that had no homes in it.

How warm is the water in the Chesapeake Bay? I remember there were a few summers when we still lived in OH that the lake temperature reached the upper 70s. That is measured about 3 miles out at the water intake "crib" for Cleveland's water supply. In July, 2012, the temperature was measured at 80. The water at the beaches is even warmer.

The first time I camped in New England was an August. Our first night was in CT, at Hammonasset Beach. My intentions were to take a quick dip in Long Island sound in the morning in lieu of a shower. Whoo! That water was snappy-cold!

When I swam in Lake Erie it was at Edgewater Park.
