4 Quiet, Crowd-Free Beaches in America

Sun-soaked sand, cool water, and the sound of crashing waves work together to make beaches the perfect spot for relaxation. They can be incredibly crowded and polluted, though, which can put a damper on relaxation. Thankfully, there are some little-known beaches that grant you a crowd-free vacation.4 Quiet, Crowd-Free Beaches in America

Bald Head Island, NC

Reachable only by a 20-minute ferry ride, this is one of several overlooked quiet beaches in North Carolina. The island boasts plenty of quiet beaches, forest reserves, and outdoor activities. Out of the island’s 12,000 acres, 10,000 are untouched beaches, forests, and marshland. If you want a break from the beach, however, there are also restaurants, shopping malls, and other activities to check out.

Cumberland Island

This island is also only accessible by ferry and is notable due to its protected and abundant wildlife. Rather than sharing the beach with dozens of other families, you might find yourself sharing it with wild horses! Deer and armadillos are also found on the island, making it a great place to experience nature.

Sandbridge Beach, Virginia

This beach is just 15 miles from the bustle of Virginia Beach, but it’s devoid of the constant crowds of its neighbor. There aren’t any resorts on this five-mile stretch of beach, so you can sit down and relax or search for seashells with just the natural sounds of the beach. It’s just close enough to abundant activities near Virginia Beach, however, that if you’d like a faster paced day, you can achieve that easily!

Garrapata State Park, California

Admittedly, this isn’t the best beach to go to if your heart is set on swimming; the surf is too rough to swim safely. However, the same rough surf creates sheltered bluffs and little coves, even a few caves. If you love hunting for shells or checking out the wildlife in tide pools, you’ll love exploring this beach!

If you love nature and want to avoid the bustle of tourist-flooded beaches, there are plenty of peaceful beaches cross America to choose from. These beaches allow you to do what you came to do: rest.

TABC Partners With Federal Law Enforcement

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission , or TABC, was established to enforce regulations involving alcohol. The TABC has a great deal of responsibility when it comes to overseeing the laws and regulations involving alcohol and the licensing division takes its job very seriously. There are several efforts currently underway to help ensure that tabc licensing and permits are administered and issued as properly as possible. With the right amount of oversight, TABC believes they can help keep Texas residents safe by preventing the sale of alcohol to minors and also intoxicated individuals. They can also help maintain Texas residents’ safety in other ways.

Partnering with Law Enforcement

TABC’s mission to keep Texas residents safe was demonstrated recently when the TABC canceled liquor permits for two separate night clubs that were presumed to have been involved with drink solicitation, narcotics and human trafficking. The TABC worked collaboratively with the Travis County Sheriff’s Office and federal task force partners for four months due to allegations of two separate night clubs being involved in illegal activity. The TABC and tabc licensing can play an important role in identifying illegal activity that might be happening within TABC-licensed businesses. The TABC has the legal right to monitor and regulate licenses, which can involve site visits that allow for a closer look into their establishments. The TABC can work with law enforcement agencies if they find any reason to believe illegal activity is happening. This is exactly what happened recently in southeast Texas.

TABC Cancels Liquor Licenses Due to Illegal Activity

In March 2019 the TABC cancelled the liquor licenses for two clubs. Both Club Casino and Zota’s Night Club are located in Austin, Texas and according to reviews on yelp both clubs are now closed. The case is still currently still under investigation so details are limited, but it appears that human trafficking had been happening for at least a few years. Federal officials have publicly expressed their gratitude for the TABC’s role in this case.
