“Very fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Novel touristy area. Fun shops and restaurants. We were there at the end of the normal season, so lots of shops and restaurants were closed for winter. However, the shops and restaurants we visited were very friendly and had interesting souvenirs and things to buy. It was fun to walk around and see the fish caught through the Charter Fishing services, as they cleaned and filleted their catch.

“Pretty but too much tacky”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

A few nice shops and great beaches to walk on but mostly a lower level tourist Mecca for shoppers. Not worth walking the whole spit.

Great place to visit and stroll around. There are many interesting shops and vendors. You will see plenty of otters and eagles on the beach.

“Camping on the Spit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Nice waterfront rv site - we didn't need the hookup - and fun walking down to the beach. Not much firewood in the area, so plan ahead.
