The area around Walkers Point which is home to the Bush family in summer is really pretty. There's a small parking area at the side of the road where you get a great view of the compound & some good photo opportunities.

Had the opportunity to spend the weekend overlooking the point. Very beautiful a walk along the ocean Was beautiful We had a day of warm sunny weather and a morning of heavy rain and wind.

We visited in October, and the leaves still had some color so a pretty drive up Ocean Ave. to the point. We were in a bus, and just did a drive-by of the President George H.W. Bush family compound. George H.W. and Barbara, spend time at Walker's Point from Memorial Day through Columbus Day. According to our guide, they both... More

Beautiful view of the sea and waves pounding the rocks. Everyone takes pics of the Bush compound from this vantage point. Fun. There was misty rain the day we were there, and this gave the ocean mystique - wonderful in any kind of weather.
