I’ve only been here a couple times. I enjoy being by the water. It’s a nice place to visit. Lots of trash around on the ground and could use some sprucing up.

Such a nice place to walk around or relax. Or you can fish off the pier some people swim at the little beach. There's a good Chinese food place there and an arcade if I remember right. I just like walking around .
