  • Too many mosquitoes, the planes come in so low to land and take off, almost close enough to touch it looks like-WAY TOO LOUD AT TIMES! BUT the Boston skyline/view is AMAZING! July 4th Fireworks in 3 different communities can be seen from here, Breathtaking views. You can fish on the bridge, or if you have a boat in boatyard, fish from yard at high tide, it's great fishing spot!
  • Beautiful walk for kids and dog. Fun to watch the planes overhead. Can have a lot of bugs, though.
