When crossing the channel to enjoy a great meal at Monument Inn, we love riding the ferry across both ways. It's convenient and enjoyable.

We found this treasure by accident, but what an exciting addition to a night out for dinner. It is just a short couple minute trip across to the other side but it is exciting what with all the barge traffic going by.

The ferry ride is one of a kind that is breathtaking and refreshing. Visitors will be in awe by the time you reach the other dock to see San Jacinto Monument.

We go this way often to eat at the Monument Inn Restaurant. You just can’t beat it, The San Jacinto Monument and Battle ground park, the Battleship of Texas. There’s a bunch of things to do and get your Texas on. So hop to it.

I love this ferry ride. It's sort of old and nostalgic, but getting to the other side is certainly worth it. Ther's a great restaurant with delicious seafood; battleship and monument, and awesome park areas. It's a great place to get away and reminence.

Always fun to go on the ferry even if it is just over a back. Kids enjoy the barge traffic and the ships coming and going.
