A beautiful place to take a walk and relax on one if the many swings located on the board walk. The view of the lake is breathtaking!

Did not walk, but drove thru and checked out the boat launch near the Coast Guard station. Noticed one homeless person in our visit, but bicycle cops kind of kept him corralled away from visitors to the launch. Saw a bunch of nice street cafes...More

A beautiful spot just to sit and enjoy the view. Dinner on the waterfront then a stroll is a perfect evening.

I agree with all the other folks who are answering this question. The Waterfront walk is very simple and can be completed in easily 1 hour, if you took your time and take photos. I did not see any pull along campers or such... More
