“A Nice Short Scenic Drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

This is a pretty and scenic drive by the Bush estate. It only takes a few minutes and there are a few nice photo opportunities. Obviously free and easy to do. Bring your camera and/ or binoculars for great ocean and coastline views?

“Distant Views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

Nice looking compound that can only be viewed from across marsh on the road. Beautiful setting. It would be nice if more information were avilable but it is a private residence.

“Good views from the road”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Because an ex-president (George H W. Bush) lives here, you can't get too close, but there are two places along Ocean Avenue where you can pull over and take photos. It's very picturesque.

“HUGE!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

Okay....I didn't vote for either of the Bush presidents, but their house is pretty cool to see. It sits out on a wonderful penensula and it is absolutely huge. It must be really special to be on the property for their family get-togethers.

“Nice little drive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

I enjoyed driving by, but once you've seen it once, you've seen it. Make sure it is a nice day, because if the clouds and fog have come in, it is hard to see.
