Everything is in walking distance. A wonderful day of eating, seeing the water and the boats coming and going. Different styles of choices for food and drinks at every corner. Music was at some, clothing stores are between business. Wonderful blend of everything.

Very nice park on the water with children's playground, pier onto the water, fountains, picnic tables and much more. Fairly small, but lovely park that goes between one bridge and the other with sidewalks or grass to walk on.

This is a place to sit and watch the most beautiful sunsets in Southwest Florida. Throughout the year there are free events and concerts to visit. There are public restrooms and a shelter with picnic benches and lighting.
