“Beautiful surf”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Early morning drive to hospital calming before days in waiting room. Thinking of all the elements of God's creation. Birds running from water and pelicans flying in formation, diving for fish.

“Nice Historical information”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Like that except for the Pleasure pier and one other clothing store. Ocean side was free of concessions. Nice to just enjoy the beauty of the gulf.

“A dozen miles + of flood protections”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Seawall Blvd is an interesting drive with most attractions on the north side. There is ample parking mid-week, but weekends are pretty packed. Its an interesting people watching area.

“The beach”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

The sea wall is an enjoyable area with close parking and fishing on the break wall. Watching the rides and walking the beach at night can be a romantic evening for anyone. You can grab a bite to eat on the wall anywhere and have a fruity drink.
