Young families can splash together in the geysers, fountains and mini slides at Lakeslide Landing and Lemmy’s Lagoon. These two “spraygrounds” are designed just for pint-sized water lovers and provide areas for parents to relax in the sun while watching their kids have fun.

Hungry guests can feast on fresh chicken wraps, gourmet salads, seafood and more at Crystal Rock Café or cool off with an ice cream cone from Beaches & Cream. Schooner’s Bayside Bar and Muffleheads Beach Bar are great locations to take a break and grab a cold brew.
