Tips from locals
Visit the Elizabeth A. Morton National Wildlife Refuge for hiking and bird watching. You’ll likely see chipmunks, birds, wild turkeys, frogs and more during your time in the outdoor area. Be sure to hike the Wild Birds Nature Trail, which is 1.2 miles through wooded and beach areas in the refuge…
So many places to walk, hike, or just sit and enjoy! Included is the popular Morton’s Federal preserve where birds feed out of your hand! Often you can see deer or wild turkeys. Take the trail out to the bay.
Established in 1954 this 187 acre wildlife refuge is an awesome place to go for a hike, take in the diverse habitats, and snap some photos along the way. Don’t forget to bring along bird seed, wild birds will feed right from your hands! Kids will have a blast being so close to nature.
Great trail that leads to the beach. Birds eat out of your hands here if you have seed.

“If you are at Foster Memorial Beach a/k/a "Long Beach" which may have the occasional food truck, but not a snack bar, Serene Green's is a cute little Farmers market around the corner to pick up a bite. They have more inside than it seems from the outside. There are cold drinks, an often homemade soups and dips like crab and artichoke, and plenty of produce. In the Fall, they are the only place that has my favorite apple: Winesap. ”
