We do have some shopping on-property as well as a variety of dining options on-site. There are several restaurants and shopping in close proximity to the resort as well, just not within walking distance. We also have several different walking/running/hiking trails on the resort grounds and within the nature preserve that are easily accessible from the hotel.
