Open 24 hours and free to the public. The Sunset Point pier extends over 400 feet onto Lake Pontchartrain with views of the world-famous Causeway Bridge, and, as the name hints, a great place to watch awe-inspiring sunsets. The pier has public restrooms, picnic tables onshore and water connections at the end of the pier for cleaning fish. No pets, alcohol, cast nets or traps. Directions: From Monroe St., turn south on Massena St. and follow to parking lots on Lake Pontchartrain.
