    Great views. The sound of the waves is great. The restaurant is very good. A lot of stores and restaurants near by. They have Aquarium tickets. You can walk straight down to the beach. They have decks with chairs to sit and watch the water.

    I was told high 50's to very low 60's. The weather was hotter than normal over Labor Day weekend. I personally did go in the water but was told those temps by several people there.
