Eating and Drinking
As a family I know you find getting food for the kids sometimes hard. You can bring a picnic lunch and have it on the waterfront boardwalk, or you can dine at Yot’s Cafe where they have wonderful meals for adults and a great kids menu. Kids can have a $10.00 meal deal and my kids loved theirs when we were there last.
