“Tons of shopping, dining, adventure things like a rock climbing wall and a zip line. They even have a free fall! (Don't freak out. Jumping is the hardest part. You don't fall super fast.)”

Park
“This park is located across from the bay. There are picnic tables and a short nature walk area, where you can learn about and observe some native species. There is a shallow water fishing pier across from the park, where you can fish (with your license) or watch the locals fish with cast nets. And the sunrise and sunset is pretty fabulous from this spot too.”
