The Town of the Blue Mountains and Collingwood both consider themselves tourist areas and promote this idea.

Now both towns have implemented expensive parking at all their beach areas ($10 per hour).

I can appreciate setting aside a number of parking spots for locals, however, I do not understand socking it to the tourists these areas depend on for revenue. Very short-sighted!
