Nature
“Really cool piece of history to go see! The views are amazing. It's a short drive up the road through Hubbard park, and it's free to park and climb the roughly 30ft tower. Cars must be back through the gate by evening (I think the gates close strictly at 4:45PM). You can walk, but it's a long and steep road.”
