Great walking area with a small variety of shops and food options. The beach area was beautiful and clean. It was well patrolled by Local law enforcement personnel which were engaging and helpful.

Pleasant riverside promenade going from the Revolution museum along the riverside past the beach, eateries and bars. Nice walk with a bot of breeze off the river on a hot day.

I really enjoyed the scenery. Nice place to walk around and people watch. Plenty of people swimming as well. Decent sized beach. I prefer the Gulf Coast, but I enjoyed walking around.
