Food and Restaurants
Many of our fabulous food places our offering curbside pick up and/or delivery. Our food and beverage businesses have done an outstanding job of finding creative solutions to safely keep us all well fed. Our local chefs can help you with some quick take-out or a feast for the whole family. You can find an up to date listing of "to go" restaurants
. Don't forget that many can deliver beverages and cocktails as well. Our brewery has a roll-up window and our distillery has online ordering available.
Retail and Activities
Essential retailers continue to be open with social distancing and enhanced safety protocols in place. We anticipate other retailers and activities will be reopening soon.
Socially distanced fishing, hiking, biking, birding and beach going are all available at this time.
Many events have been cancelled, rescheduled, or are being revamped and restructured - things are changing daily! Once we have a little more stability we will be sharing all the updates.
