  • Good place to spend time and see beautiful sunset. $4 for adults. The front gate are closed at 8 pm. Drive through all roads to choose the best place for your. No dogs allowed ( There are public restrooms, but no water. Lots of mosquitoes near water, be prepared.
  • Cute little spot to fish in the bay. We caught some blue crab and pulled up a jellyfish. BRING BUG SPRAY! The wind gets a little cray at times but it’s nice when it’s hot out. The kids enjoyed playing at the sea themed park and exploring the musical toys. There is an observation spot on a little hill, where you can get some great bird photos. The only down side is the restrooms 😬 I’m not a Port-a potty fan. Entry fees: Adults 12 and up $4 Kids are $1 I can’t remember the other prices they had listed.
