Nice to drive around this area and see the lovely houses including the Bush compound. Hard to stop to take pictures for obvious security reasons but still good to see and lovely views of the water.

We stopped here after driving around Ocean Drive and taking pics of the beautiful views. There is a small area (few cars can fit) for you to pull off. It is across the water, but still visible and you can take pics.

This will not allow posting a link, but do a search on this site for excursions, etc. I would say mainly the beauty--beaches, etc. and FOOD! The food is to die for!
