The Avalon Fishing Pier was within walking distance of our condo. My parents visited it earlier in the week, so my husband and I decided to check it out one afternoon. The pier has an indoor arcade with games like pinball, skeeball, and classic video games. My husband is a sucker for claw machines and was pretty successful. They also have restrooms available.
After checking out the arcade, we decided to walk out on the pier. It costs $1 a person to visit the pier as a sightseer and more than that ($5 or $10) if you want to fish. We walked the length of the pier and the views of the ocean and the beach were beautiful. We saw lots of gulls and pelicans, as well as a pretty talented windsurfer. Lots of people were fishing that day and had brought coolers, picnic lunches, and deck chairs. It seemed like everyone was out enjoying the day and a few people reeled in fish while we were there.
The pier also has a bait and tackle shop where you can get all of your fishing gear for a great day. I would recommend it for anyone who likes fishing or appreciates beautiful scenery. We spent about an hour there and had a great time.
