Have a fresh cup of coffee or hot chocolate with a fresh-baked donut, cup of soup, or sandwich at the Backstreet Deli. Or step outside to the Anchor Fries French Fry Truck and have some delicious fries, prepared before your eyes from freshly cut potatoes, or a hand-dipped ice cream cone from the Ice Cream Trailer.
Bring your fishing gear and try your luck in what some consider one of the best fishing spots around (but you didn’t hear it here!).
