America's Most Crowded Beaches

America's Most Crowded Beaches: Jones Beach

David Zimmerman / CORBIS

No. 9 Jones Beach, NY

Annual Visitors: 5,100,000

Hugging the southern shoreline of Long Island, this 10-mile beach resembles Grand Central Station at rush hour on a hot Saturday in August. On those dog days of summer, you need to search hard for a place to spread out a towel that doesn’t infringe upon someone else’s turf.
