Loved the flower gardens and sea wall. The lighthouse is small but nice. A nice visit for a rainy day.

The Hereford Inlet is always a nice spot to visit. Walking around and seeing nature and plants and flowers. If you have little ones the best is their Pirates Day Celebration. Stories and fun for the little one and of course lots of suveners.
