  • Rested in the park at the beach. Ate lunch at Caroline‚Äôs, a bit pricey but the view was great. Access to the restaurant is not obvious. On the university campus. Four stars for the restaurant.  more »
  • Beach has a lot of seaweed on it currently. Boardwalk area closed. But you are able to walk the beach a good ways up to the pier. Very scenic.  more »
