The Bee’s Knees Fruit Farm
Book a countryside getaway at this enchanting, upscale farmhouse located on 3 acres of fresh fruit and vegetables ready to pick at your leisure.

Marley Family Seaweeds
If you’re a (sea)foodie and support sustainability, arrange a seaweed foraging tour with local aquaculture expert Spencer Marley and his family. The 90-minute educational tour takes you along stunning beaches as you learn about seaweed types and health benefits. End the tour with ramen topped with Marley’s harvested seaweed.

Sweet Springs Nature Preserve
