Very scenic but we didn’t stay long. Very basic railing in front of a 5+ foot drop into the water with no visible way back out. I was a nervous wreck and held onto my 2 little ones tightly.

Took a walk before dinner for some exercise and fresh air after driving all day. Enjoyed the walk and all the activity along the boardwalk and the river. The freighters are awesome.

Watch the freighters and other boats. Fisherman are busy and the view of Canada with the two bridges are memorable. The walk to the Coast Guard boats along the river is pleasurable with the lighthouse ship and added bonus. There is a fee to board,...More
