Three days of trying was enough for us. It was kind of crowed for my taste. Its got a nice view and I would bring my kids to try there. Its not a bad spot,just didn't show us any love at the time. Its a hit or miss spot I'd say. Like any fishing spot,its all up to the fish

it was a nice walk but not a must, the kids had a better time playing under and around the area then on it.

it is a pier, nothing fancy, outdated....I have to say that Janette's pier is much more informative and interesting, especially for families....overall I prefer the beach over a pier anytime

We didn't fish, but if you want to that will set you back $10. We just hung out. They sell beer. People fishing weren't too friendly. Good thing I had my buddies there with me! We enjoyed it for about an hour. I think it cost a buck to just go out on the pier. Oh, and did I mention... More

As an amputee I am limited to where I can fish; so I find Avalon Pier a great location for me. If I do not have gear with me, I can rent it!

I stopped here just to check out the pier for fishing on a later trip. I thought the pier was set up nicely and very clean.

Grab a casual lunch in the small, quaint restaurant on the pier. It's very casual....the view is outstanding.
