Its a place where you can see a large landscape of beach and ocean without leaving your mode of transportation. Its a round-about type thing. Easy to use but you must keep your vehicle moving.

Watched a woman nearly get swept out to sea by a rogue wave in the winter. She barely made it back to shore. Be careful!

Sept 8 thru 11. The car cruise is usually on Saturday night of the event. This is a terrific event to attend.
