we have a fantastic one down here as well, just opened last year. They have a decommissioned restored lake freighter that you pretty much have all access to. Very cool and only a few blocks from home.

I remember walking the beach up there the following summer looking for anything that might have washed up and looking out over the water. Spent a couple weeks a year camping up there every summer as a kid.
