Labor Day weekend has come and gone and the end of summer is here. But being that we live in Texas, there are still a few hot weekends ahead of us. If you didn't get a chance to travel down to one of the Gulf Coast beaches this summer, fear not, because this cute hidden beach near Dallas is perfect for a lost summer hurrah. 

Little Elm Beach is enclosed and doesn't allow boat traffic which means it's a swimmers paradise. There is plenty of space for you to relax on the shore and get in that last bit of tanning before the summer is over. If you're looking to have a nice picnic on the beach, you can chill by one of the grills where you can cookout while you hangout.

This cute little beach is perfect for your next Instagram post and they even have a massive and funky photogenic chair where you're more than welcome to take pictures. You can spend the night for just $5 but you will need to purchase the permit beforehand. 

There is a $10 parking fee at different times so be prepared with cash in case it happens to be that weekend. The beach is open from sunrise until 10 p.m. If you're looking for more beaches near the Metroplex, you can check out Eisenhower State Park's hidden beach or Grand Prairie's Lynn Creek Park
