“Historic and amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Worth the visit. Historic perspective and fantastic views. Look out at about the 10 o'clock position and you will see a peninsula with Eric Clapton's estate.

“Shirley Heights experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We went to Shirley Hieghts on a Sunday night per a friend's recommendation. It was ok, not something I would do again. It was way to crowded. There is nothing wrong with it, just falls into the once is enough category.
