Enjoy a lovely walk, stoll, or run down this business lined walkway. Watch the water, take in a boat ride, or just stop in a nearby resturant for a delicious meal. Southern hospitality!

Nice to walk along after a dinner downtown. It is also pet friendly. All kinds of boats tied up along the docks.
