You can get a great view of this from the park. Me and my fiancé took a few photos in front of this for engagement photos. The only reason I didn’t give this a 5 is because I think the Mountain View in front of...More

We headed that way Easter Sunday. No parking which we should have known! It was nice though to go out to the beach and walk on the sand and take some pictures. Next time will for sure spend more time here.
