Unfortunately, the weather wasn't very good when we were there. However, it's a beautiful walk along the water. Across the street, there are restaurants, shops and amusement rides. Very nice area to visit, especially in nice weather!

The prom is a good place to go for a walk. The prom itself is long and safe for walking, can get quite busy. There is a lovely beach for children to play on and plenty of parking. There is also an outdoor pool with...More
