If you are looking for a day at a waterpark, Big Kahunas is a lot of fun. It is least busy if you go right away when they open on Sunday. If you are going more than once, check on line for the season pass that includes parking!

The coolest bowling alley that looks like an aquarium. Decent food too. The wait to bowl in the evenings can be long - call first to find out best time to visit.

My friend owns this and people love it - it is a catamaran tour for up to 6 guests. So much fun! Captain Pam has a cooler with ice, you bring some food and beverages and sail around. She'll take you to great swimming spots, catch a suntan or book for a sunset tour. Can't recommend this enough!

Ok, I have never done this but I'm dying to! I love to see this tiki hut cruising around. Check out the website - they have a lot of options. I think the Thursday night one to watch the fireworks would be so cool!

This is a great spa if you want to spend the day using the hot tub, pool, eat lunch, etc. It's a bit of a drive so if you are visiting in the summer I would do a google search and find one closer to home. If you are coming for a wedding, bachelorette or event like that, book in advance...this is where I'd recommend!

This has long been my fav Mexican restaurant but over the years the restaurant is getting a little shabby. But if you like thin chip, fajitas and then a slice of apple pie served on a hot skillet drizzled with caramel, then this is the place for you!
