Coupled with five scenic state parks, 11 lighthouses, and 80 cultural venues, the natural scenery dominates here. The region hosts several museums, theaters, and art galleries. Art classes and workshops serve as big draws throughout the year, while live music and plays fill the entertainment schedule.
