Nice views of the air traffic in the area of the airport and the scenery in the area. Occasionally you get to see Air Force One doing touch and gos. Clean and normally not many others in the tower area.

Easy to access observation deck with nice views of the runway. Quiet spot to wait before going through security or while waiting to pick someone up. You can watch all the planes land and take off. Small seating area with big windows.
