The views are amazing and offer amazing photo ops. I was amazed at how clean the glass was in each of the cars. You will go around at least 3 times offering a few opportunities for photos. Kids would enjoy it as well!

There's street parking available in front of the Wheel House and all along it--long stretch. There are dedicated street handicap parking spots available. This is of course first come first serve.
