Very safe pleasant way to spend evening, watching the fisherman, sunset, or the seagulls. Lots of sidewalk to get your exercise..or sit on a nice park bench next to the water and just chill

This is a lovely place to stroll, catch a sunset, and relax. The surrounding water was alive with jumping fish and there's a charming pelican who will steal your bait.

For our Anniversary, we had a walk during dusk (shortly after a fine dinner at Thyme -- see separate review) which is always perfect during Summer along the Gulf Coast. The weather was especially cooperative that night, and between the sunset, the lapping waves, the...More
