Great views of the ocean, unique to be able to stand in two states at the same time. Coffee shop was busy but nice to have an ice cream. Lovely walk to the beach & back.

Have been visiting the lookout since I was a little kid. Nice to see some maintenance/repairs being undertaken to ensure that it will be here for many more years to come. Great views from the view decks.

Great to visit during the day to get great views north and south of beautiful coastline. Also great to visit as sun is setting for different perspective. Must visit the quaint Coast Guard tourist shop for good priced souvenirs and gifts.

Where else in this wide world can you go and have 2 states along the same city street? Not many. It's a great location and photo opportunity, and the beaches around are purdy spectacular.

From Twin Towns Resort we decided to have a walk and chose this from the Trip Advisor recommendations. The views are spectacular.

We visited recently and the view from here is so beautiful and stretches as far as the eye can see. We caught a glimpse of some passing whales and just enjoyed looking around.
