Take a guided kayak tour on one of 17 rare coastal dune lakes, cycle or hike one of the many state parks and forests, or enjoy unlimited other outdoor activities such as walking nature trails, fishing, canoeing and swimming. Browse unique galleries, markets and boutiques, and explore a huge variety of eclectic eateries and hidden seafood spots. A variety of events and festivals are also held throughout the year celebrating film, music, art, and wine.
