    Very scenic and the fort was very interesting. Very nice area to just take a leisurely walk along the beach or the grounds.  more »

    We were lucky to stay on Willard street so the beach was just steps away. Nice long beach for walking or spending the day. Check the tides before you go if you want to swim as the low tide is very low...  more »

    This is a nice, quiet place to check out in the evenings to watch the sun set or moon rise. The beach has a bit of debris on it, but that really didn't bother us.  more »
