The ferry ride is quick, but go for the ferry operators, they make it fun! I told them it was my friend's first time on the ferry, and he started yelling, "Ferry Virgin" all the cars started honking and we were laughing. It was Great!

Something nostalgic about a ferry ride. Even at $6-7, the experience is worth it. Short trip, short wait, friendly staff. Been a few times since moving here a few months ago. Will be back.
