Relaxing on a beach or an easy boardwalk trail - the choice is yours! Drive time to the third stop is 20 minutes.


Enjoy a low-key lunch and a bit of shopping in an area with a unique connection to an iconic brother duo. Drive time to the fourth stop is 5 minutes.

Loved Sun-Kissed Surprises!

We did the sun-kissed surprises with our one-year-old and it was great! The stops gave us options and we were able to pick which ones would work best for us. Definitely gave us some family memories for the books!
