Very touristy, greesy fried foods. If you have nothing else to and want to be by the water it’s just passable. Go to anyone of the local beaches and bring lunch instead.

A highlight in the Brigeport area. Much better than Port Jeff. Plenty to see in the stores. Nice sun deck and restaurant. Plenty of free parking.

1.5 miles. If driving, easiest way is enter 95S, & go 1 exit (X26). I believe there are small road signs there. (A lot of turns thru a "weird" area)
