  • It's a beautiful place, with access to the beach and playground for children. I went in the off-season and had no restaurants close by and not other activities options.

  • A cool park with a beautiful view over Lewis Bay.
  • Great museum. Icon of the Cape
  • Beautiful location and well cared for. They don't allow dogs so we sat in the shade outside of the guard's view while my husband got a closer look.
  • There is a free 30 minute parking lot specifically for the memorial. Very clean and beautiful.
  • It's kinda small for a "presidential monument", but it's well kept and all that.
