If your going there its a must see/ do!!! take the walk out to samson peak, its a board walk in the sky, spectacular 360 view. for those that dislike hights face the moutin!! if you like hieghts face the other way its breath taking. Public transit is VERY VERY clean and its the only thing thats cheap out there.

Stunning views on the way up and at the top. Loved the boardwalk climb up Sanson Peak. The entire staff at the gondola and the cafe were incredibly friendly. After you get your voucher, you still have to wait in line for a paper ticket, which is silly. A little pricey for such a short ride, but it was an amazing experience.

Get there early to avoid lines! We booked in advance which saved a lot of time and lines, we booked for 9:10 and were able to go around 9:30. It's a cool experience! The boardwalk out to the top of the mountain is a LONG walk but so cool! It's a very easy walk, the boardwalk is really nice.
