Lots of gift shops and fast food places. Check it out but eat in town! The shops sell a variety of goods but seem slightly expensive

The spit has a wide variety of shops and experiences. It is about 5 miles long. Rvs can park there for $5 per day. There are also fish packing sites for the fish you catch and want to take home.
