This a once in a life time view and experience. If you plan on visiting you may want to plan for the entire day. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and clothes if you plan on walking the Dunes. It is not for the weak and weary.

Food scene

My husband and I absolutely love this venue. It has a casual atmosphere with a fine dining experience. It is on an upscale menu, but the value of the food is well worth it. We highly recommend the fresh whitefish from John Cross’s fish market. The stewed tomatoes are to die for!
