Don't miss Journeyman (at least in non-COVID times!). Grab some local spirits for your bar and marvel at the two rock stars who have built this business from the ground up!

Best bagles in the midwest (and we are picky...we came here from Brooklyn).  ALL of their jams are amazing and worth taking home as well.

Sunset (and someday, again, beach)
Don't miss a walk down Pier Street - the Pier Street beach is our local beach, and while water levels are too high right now to enjoy the beach itself, a glass of wine at the lookout during sunset is still the most glorious experience. And Pier Street is so charming.

Art Galleries
Don't miss this eclectic gallery in an old schoolhouse! You never know what you're going to find here.  Judith used to own our house and started her gallery in the Blue House. She has run the Outsider Art Fair for decades, cancelling for the first time ever in 2020 due to COVID. A serious, serious gem.

Very strong ceramics / maker game. Recently moved to Baroda, which is an interesting town and has some antiques.  Could combine with a trip to Dablon winery.

Fritz is pretty prolific and serious.  His wife is obsessed with dogs and dog sculptures.  So...it's a funny mix. And totally worth a visit!
