While I found the few rows of boat houses to be adorable, and the view was lovely, this pier is not really set up with safety in mind. No type of fences/ropes/railings to speak of along the pier. To top it off, my 4-year-old child nearly fell through a large opening between the ice cream shoppe and the pier! Luckily she caught herself and only her legs fell through to the water below. Lots of children go to ice cream places so to me this is a bit ridiculous! I must add that I am a world traveler and not extremely safety minded so coming from me one must take this seriously.
Also, other than the ice cream shoppe/kayak rentals and the cute boat houses there is literally nothing else going on at this pier. Seems they could do so much more with it. I have been to so many lovely piers in the United States and this one just does not measure up.
