An AMAZING place to visit and see a musical! Lots of walking, benches and flowers! Perfect for couples on a romantic walk or a family out for the day. Its on the water so you need to bring a sweater for cool evenings.

Take a break from food and shopping for a stroll through some beautiful gardens by the sea. The perennials are combined with annual plantings. The riot of color is "eye candy." The pathway meanders along near fountains and lovely trees. There are some benches for...More
