Things to Do, Places to Eat
Let’s just say, you won’t run out of things to do.
Where to start? With so many attractions and fun-filled activities, you and your family can do as much—or as little—as you want. Let’s see, do you go fishing off the pier, golfing at some of the finest greens on the East Coast, dancing at the bandstand just a couple blocks away, or shopping at some fabulous stores? Or perhaps you want to simply float in the water, maybe sit on the beach and start the day with a breathtaking sunrise? Oh, so many choices.
Whatever you want to do and experience, we can point you in the right direction.
