During my family's Christmas travels, we drove through the gorgeous little town of Helena, Alabama. There's a park there that stretches for about a quarter mile along Buck Creek. It's locally called the Helena Beach because residents treat the creek bank and a little island in the middle of the water as a beach. If you go there, park your car, then walk out to the shore to play in the surf and catch a tan.
My family visited as the Deep South was drenched in heavy rainfall and flooding. Buck Creek swelled massively, making this parking sign unnecessary.
