Old, run down, a rough crowd. Dirty, risky parking. The arcades are from "back in the day." The attraction is like traveling back into a depressing time. Downtown Salem is the better choice, or try Winter Island for a nice walk.

Nice place to chill after a day in the town. On the water with parks for kids and arcades if you choose but a nice area to take a break and a picnic with shade as it gets very hot in the summer

Something for everyone. Lots of kid activities. Chinese food, seafood, Italian, just about anything. Just sit and relax, lots of people watching, very safe beach. But most of all, by far, the best popcorn in the world at Hobbs.
