  • Bello sitio donde el sitio se va volando !!! Playa, atraction, playas, sitios historicos, lights houses, walk in the sandy beach, restaurants, rent boat, stay in beautiful hotel, motel, rental home, bicicles path, the food, friendly people, whale watching etc etc etc. You just have to try, cause every time we go, it's something new we find and enioy. An believe me, not only Virginia it's for lovers, the Cape or PayPal twon like local call it give then a good race for the money, eh!
  • What a beautiful spot! We had always seen the tower but had never climbed it. And the history and art museums were winderful. We learned so much about this beautiful town. And the views-spectacular!
  • Great little place with a museum and a giant monument to climb up and see everything. The price was all right a little expensive for what is it but it's still fun and it's helping a landmark stay erect and clean. I will definitely come here again.
  • Pretty decent visit, not a difficult climb at all. Museum was interesting, but not a Worrell class museum. The tower smelled like sweaty apes, but it's open to the sea air 24/7 :-?
  • Fun climb with outstanding views at the top. History is sprinkled throughout the walk up with stones marking different historical figures and groups. Wear comfy shoes and bring a camera!
