We stopped here while waiting for our house to be ready. Pleasantly surprised with the museum and scavenger hunt for kids. There are also a wide variety of classes for kids and adults that you can register for.

We randomly stopped at this place and saw the history of the area. Was a great lil museum and got to watch a video history. Very informative, free admission, and right next door to a beautiful lighthouse. Definitely a good family stop.

We stopped by here on our way back from a wild horse tour. My daughter (13) was not as interested as we were, but really enjoyed it. If you are a duck hunter or just interested in the history of the area, you will find...More
