    Had a nice peaceful view. Look out for people try to forcefully clean/polish your shoes and trying to take money off you.

    Once known as the Misi-ziibi. Not to be confused with auto corrects' "misty ziti."

    Wouldn't suggest it for a swimming spot... I wish they'd have kept the gondola from the '84 Worlds Fair. Of course, it only properly functioned about 55% of the time even when it was new! Lol!
