Friendly well organized volunteers conduct a great tour. I learned something and had a new view. The history includes how it finally became open for tours.

We always spend 10-15 minutes visiting the tower when in Westport. Its an easy stair climb and has parking in front of it. bring some binoculars for added views of Ocean Shores on a clear day.

We stop by the viewing tower every trip. It’s a short climb to the top and the view is fantastic! It’s free, and a healthy stair climb.

The observation tower was close to where we were staying so it was worth the time to go up a few flight of stairs to see the view. There are "viewing binoculars" just in case there might be a whale out in the bay or...More

This is a nice facility that the city has provided. The panorama from the top gives a view of the coastal beaches and the Westport harbor/waterfront. On a pretty day it is a must see.

Nice view from the top. Unless you are actually in Westport I would not go out of the way to come here.
