This marina is great for getting up close views of the lake. Parking is super easy. While the views of the lake are enjoyable, the actual marina itself is nothing special...just a plain concrete walk. I feel like there's so much that could be done to enhance the experience. It is cool to go to the observation tower, probably there best thing about the arena. You have elevated prospects of the lake, marina, lakefront homes, and the city of Buffalo. And of course it's all free! So it makes For a nice little excursion after dinner in the city.
