A popular spot for both the locals and the tourists. There are many attractions (e.g. the aquarium, a video game arcade or an iconic carousel) and also many places to get food. You can choose from a variety of cuisines – burgers, pizzas or seafood are all to be found there.
The Pacific Park, an amusement park including a solar-powered Ferris wheel, is also a great place to visit. Among its other attractions are e.g. West Coaster, Bumper Cars or Mini Pirate Ship.
There is a Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant (inspired by the Forrest Gump movie) located at the Pier so if you are a fan of the film, you should consider visiting it.
There are no admissions to the pier or to the amusement park. You only pay for the individual attractions.
Both the pier and the amusement park are admission free.
The attractions in the park are priced individually.
