If you walk down the end past the Aquarium there’s some nice walks along the waterfront. I even went for a little wade, and popped across the border to Switzerland. The area also has a good array of restaurants and bars at various price points

Lots of lakefaring vessels but also cafes and shade in the summer. The water is partially accessible in shallow areas.
