“Great local bar. You cannot come to CB and NOT step foot into the Fat Pelican. Walk into their freezer to pick out your own beer and sit outside in the eclectic outdoor area. ”
“If you are a history buff or simply love a scenic trail, this is the place to visit if you have some time.”
“Best place to enjoy a drink on a pier and Tiki hut. I would recommend going mid-late afternoon. Bands are typically on Thursday and Sundays. If the pier is crowded plan to sit on the beach to hear the bands. You could drive to park in their lot (gets filled quick) or park in CB, and walk the beach (20 min walk on the beach). They also have great bar food.”
“Great Donuts! Usually, a bit of a line but it moves very quickly. Definitely worth the visit! ”
“Good for families, tons of space and seating. Game room for kids. Live bands take place here during the summer weekend nights, lots of people flock here to hang out”
