This is a great spot to come and get a view. I used the "big binoculars" that are provided (the ones that are standing) and was able to see so much! Great spot!

My wife and I had a pleasant walk along the water. There were plenty of benches available, so we stopped and sat for a while just looking over the water in the shade. It was quite peaceful.

We were only there a few days, but Boone Hall is a must. We had to pay a taxi, but it was well worth it. They have slave quarters in which you could truly appreciate their hard and awful life. If you get Kevin and...More

There are parking garages nearby. You will be very lucky to find a parking meter close by or have enough change. A quarter gets you 15 minutes. Enforced to 6:00 pm free on weekends.
