I have been to the Shack and the Vanderbilt Museum and Planetarium.
The stinky low tide only happens on the Pond Side when they open the sluices. Otherwise it is quite lovely and there are lots of folks who fish on the causeway. (Though do check if beaches are open after heavy rain) There is a lot of wildlife here too.
And the best boatyard on the North Shore is Centerport Boat Works.
Up Mill Dam Road is a pub called The Beach Pub, it is pretty popular locally. They have darts, pool and shuffleboard.
I don’t drink so I would never go there, but I know folks who do.
I have been around this community since I was in the womb. I lived elsewhere from age 3 till about 15 years ago. Maybe it is a 43place too ?over 3 years ago
