Scenic Lookout
“Home to the infamous Taylor Swift! Catch a glimpse while browsing the shops or taking a walk to the lighthouse. Also be sure to check out The Ocean House and if you have littles ones, The Flying Horse Carousel is the oldest operating carousel in the US in which the horses are suspended from chains. This is conveniently located next to St. Clare's Annex which has the best homemade ice cream in the area. Olympia Tea Room has great dinner with great views as well!”
