There's not much to see, but this can be combined with viewing the Amelia Earhart statue and the SS Kyle wreck and even take in a short boardwalk on the bay. Interesting for the history of the area

Lovely monument with history of Amelia and her flight across the Atlantic. The old Kyle is grounded in the ocean behind this display. Lovely site as you enter Hr. Grace from the Veteran's Highway.
