Beware of the parking - some business' have started towing the cars visiting other business'--kind of a mini-war going on right now. Ragtime Cajun restaurant is very cool and fun, Joseph's Pizza and Sliders cool as well. Dont' do much shopping, the prices are not reflective of the quality of the goods. All in all, not all that great -... More

I grew up here , so I am a bit biased. I love the town center. It has shopping, great food, and our favorite book store. Lillie's has great live music in the courtyard in the spring and summer months every Friday and Saturday nights. Just a chill, fun place to hang out.

Stopped by this beautiful beach on our way home to Michigan from the Bahamas. Loved the view, and the fine white sand that felt like baby powder.

This beach was more than I expected. I traveled from up north and attended the beach parade "opening day" and had a wonderful time. The water was cool as expected, people working at the local shops were very friendly" overall great experience. If you like soft, white sand you will love this beach.

Interesting history and quite pretty. I'd like to have learned more about the place and read some books set in the area.

Found this beach because of trip advisor. Had a little trouble finding where to park and had to ask someone locally. It is in a residential area but there is a public park right by the public beach access ramp. What a gem, white sand, shells and hardly anyone there because of the private location. Very clean and relaxing.

Clean and beautiful. Lifeguards on duty. Convenient Public parking and restroom. The pier is right there and you could go out and see what the fishermen are catching or just enjoy the view. It is $1.00 per person but well worth it.

Enjoyed our day on this nice beach. Its waterfront is residential so you won't find tourist-trapped shops or restaurants. In fact, you won't find public restrooms or parking lots. This area has over 14 public access beach walkways so plan on parking along neighborhood streets. It was not overcrowded nor were teens over-ruling it with inappropriate attire like a previous...
