I see lots of people with metal detectors on the beach, especially after a big holiday like the Fourth of July. I think having friends to do it with would make it even more fun!

Deborah-Diane, the beach is quite popular for finding items. Especially since there is a lot of traffic on the beaches during holidays. This is a metal detectorist's dream! ;-)
