The pier and surrounding restaurants is not very extensive but this is part of it's charm. Parking is good and it's easy to find as it is right off the freeway.

This is a nice walk out over the water so you can look back at the shoreline. There are some history story boards along the walk. Lot's of locals fishing that will be happy to show you what they have caught for the day.

If you're looking for a great place to walk while enjoying an ocean view, this is it. It doesn't have the typical tourist attractions, such as a ferris wheel or souvenir shops, which adds to its appeal (in my opinion). Eric Ericsson's Beach House Fish...More
