  • A nice board walk to go to and rides for every family member. Plus the beach is right next to it and the parking is good if you get there early. Also i love the restrooms because they're kept very clean. Take the trip, you'll have fun!
  • Spent a day with family here, it was beyond amazingly entertaining with something for just about all ages to do. Loads of items(delicious, at least what we had) to eat. Rides, food, music and much more. Oh, but we can not forget the amazing view at the end of Route 66, the Pacific Ocean!
