  • This place was awesome! Has a very nice museum with a great 17 minute movie that plays every half hour. Outside there is an earthen fort and a nice nature trail that you can walk. There is also a nice little gift shop. Enjoyed my visit there very much, and admission is free! Highly recommended!
  • Absolutely beautiful area to walk around, the coastline was stunning. They have a daily educational talk around 230 I think, unfortunately we missed it. We had to skip the gardens due to a storm but I hear they are amazing. Everything is free to walk, around except the gardens. They also have a play they put on about the original settlers, not sure of the schedule or cost, if any.
