We took our grandkids (4 & 8) to see Winterfest of Lights on December 8. We got our tickets in advance (through our hotel) and were able to get right on a tram. Very nice light display. Highly recommend for all ages.

W,e were visiting friends and decided to take our dog for a walk in Northside Park. It was a very nice walk all thru the park and along bay. The staff were setting up Christmas lights for the annual "Festival of Lights."

I watched 2-of my friends crab, from a very long dock. Great place for crabbing, and the people there were very friendly. They used chicken for bait, and it worked well. GREAT for watching the sunrise, too.

My wife Kathy and I love this place. We usually travel off-season to avoid the crowds. There's always a couple of walkers or bike riders here. The sunsets with the bridge in the background is just priceless.
