Neighborhood

Beach
“There is a pay for fishing pier. A sandy beach with water access is a nice place to cool off on a hot day. Since it is on the bay, the waves are typically gentler than the gulf. The kids will love the play structures. If you have a skateboarder, they may want to check out the skate park. The gazebos offer great views of the bay. There are also covered picnic benches and a boat launch. ”

“Wonderful Italian food with several seafood infused choices on the menu. It is right down the street from our cottage. They have a drive up pick up window as well. You can call, order, and drive over to pick up. If you prefer to go in and sit down the dining room is nice and the staff is wonderful!”
