We loved biking on the 10 mile Seawall. If you go biking, the eastern 2-3 miles is in rough shape so ride carefully.

Wide concrete walk allows for walking, running, biking, or, you can choose to walk along the sand. Plenty of pay for parking sites available

We had a great time enjoying the parades and meeting new people. We experienced the morning parade, sat on the beach during the afternoon, and enjoyed the evening parade!

Fortunately we made advanced reservations at galvez hotel and spa. View of gulf is beautiful and we can see the pleasure point (sounds a little deviant). Miller's can't be missed. Go see it!
