The staff at the visitor center is very welcoming and helpfull. The ranger gave us really good tips about trails and beaches around this area. There is also a museum and a nice shop where we bought some postcards and magnets. We took a quick look into the photography exhibit. The pictures were beautiful.

Plus, the easy hiking paths were a delight to walk on with the interpretive signs. The maps and displays were great inside the visitor's center.
