Good view of bay

walked the boardwalk to look at fish and birds, and had good view of bay close up. Short easy walk, and interesting to see nature close up.

My husband and I enjoyed this. There is a boardwalk you can walk out and look at the fish, birds and we saw lots of hermit crabs. There was a dove and pigeon that I talked to but they flew away. A few minutes later I looked behind me and they were following me down the board walk. I thought... More

Visited the convention center for a sea turtle benefit. Grounds are lovely & about to get even better with the expansion of the center. It's spacious for a smaller venue.

Nothing there to see when we went. They have a small historic display and the whale wall which is just a wall with paintings of whales.

Thank you to the local government for the effort and appreciation of public art in both the waling wall and the zodiac sculptures on the grounds of the convention center. It was worth the drive through, but no reason to really stop and get out.

I really don't know what it is. The only reason I went there was because of the whale mural. But it's kind of like a museums.

The boardwalk at the convention center is a great place to watch the sunset. It's a quick 5 minute walk to the end where you can see the sun set over the bay.

There is a nature trail on the property that was very productive for birding. We saw ducks and shorebirds, among others.

The convention center is directly beside the birding center. The birding center is very nice but charges something like $5 per entrant. While I support paying the $5 to take the walk up the birding center's observation tower, the convention center's boardwalk is a free and nearly equal alternative. The convention center also has bird feeders set up to attract... More
