This historical monument was built during WWI. It was built to bring people together and was to showcase art.

Today, it is a theatre for people come and enjoy.

This bridge is absolutely stunning and at the very least you should take a drive over the bridge and fully enjoy what it has to offer.

Glass Beach

These beaches began as dump sites, but in the 60’s were cleaned up. However, the glass and pottery remain and the rough edges became soft from the waves. As many as 1,000 people visit each year and many take some of the glass home with them. The town has talked about ways to replenish the glass on the beach but no decisions have been made. You don’t want to miss out on see this. If you get the chance, come visit.
