MB has done a good job bringing in the attractions, but this place has gone downhill. I highly reccomend pressure washing the sidewalks, benches and decking. It looks like there is 30 years of ice cream and gum everywhere.
This is a Grand Theft Auto shanty town in real life. VERY tacky beach stores, restaurants, and circus-like gimmick shops where the staff will try to call you in off the street. The ferris wheel wasn’t even moving. Surrounded by sketchy areas and questionable characters who will accost you for spare change. Total waste of time, avoid it! Don’t even stay in this part of town!
Beautiful beach a little something for all. Not many bathhouse or restrooms though.
Nice to get out of the sand for a break
This place was one of the highlights of our trip! Really neat place to spend the day!
