You’ll find great shopping in our antique shops, fine arts gallery, novelty shops, gift shops and food market. There are numerous dining options in town, including burgers, ice cream, bakery items, sandwiches, and casual and fine dining restaurants. If you need a new 'do', there are salons that can take care of that for you! Whether it's hair or nails, we've got you covered!
All shopping, restaurants and salons are within walking distance of the pier, boardwalk and beach. Or if you’d like, rent a bicycle at the Welcome Center and bike the town. Bicycles, kayaks and paddleboards are available for hourly or daily rental between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend. If you need a peaceful break, stop by Wetlands Overlook Park at the north end of Dayton Avenue.
Our extremely popular Friday Night Farmers’ Market and Classic Car Cruise-In runs from the first Friday in May through the last Friday in October.
