This is a free destination. Reach it by car, free parking and then cross over the bridge and go on the hiking trail. It is a marsh and bird sanctuary. It is amazing if you enjoy bird watching. Great Pictures! When the air is clear, this is also a great spot to see the mountain range from here.

Special place that is a migratory stop for birds on the west coast, worth spending an hour here... dusk is a nice time to visit.

Park
“This park is just beautiful. I grew up going to this park to study, hang out, read books, take photo, etc. I studied for exams here and also took my wedding photos at this park. For those who love books, check out this library with the fountain inside. It's so peaceful. it's 2 miles away from home.”

Shopping Mall
“This is a trendy area with amazing views of the beach. Here you'll find our favorite brunch spot: Simmzy's. We love to have lunch at Lemonade or Bearflag (freshest fish ever), and have coffee at Philz Coffee. Sit on the patio area with your family to enjoy the fresh ocean air and scenic views. From here you'll be on the famous Pacific Coast Hwy (PCH), and can cruise up and down California's most famous beaches. I highly recommend taking a coastal tour of Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Corona Del Mar, etc.”
