A relatively flat walk along the beach next to the railroad tracks. There are benches to sit on, clean restrooms along the way and lovely beach and ocean to enjoy. You can set the length of your walk and it is not overly crowded.

Wonderful way to get your walk in and also enjoy the ocean at the same time. Easy to walk, bike ride, push a stroller or jog.
