Crains in the City-1


Check out Crain’s in the City which is super low-key and has our favorite apple pie around! Another great option to grab a bite is at the 8th Street Grille. They offer burgers, sandwiches, dinner entrees, salads and a good kids’ menu.

If you’re at the beach and want something very casual, grab a bit at the Dune Dogz. You can grab one of their famous hot dogs-Coney Dogs, cheese dogs, slaw dogs, and kraut dogs or ice cream, lemonade, and smoothies which make great summer treats!

Craigs’ Cruisers offers a lot of  year-round family fun. They have a large indoor game room which is popular rain or shine. The miniature golf course is a lot of fun and the go-carts bring out the kid in everyone! Plus, they have batting cages, kiddie carts, bumper boats, and food service to grab a bite.
