Carmen’s Haunt’s

                   

There are so many wonderful food and watering joints on the island!  I am going to mention a few of my favorites that, in my opinion, are "can't misses".  I have also included some of my other favorites "haunts".  See if you agree!

Lunch

 

A visit to the island means a visit to The Sandbar for island-y cocktails with pineapple and umbrellas and a light lunch.  Sitting outside and watching the waves peel away on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico is so peaceful and serene it eliminates the need for psychiatric help!

Trolley Trolling

An all-time sport here on the island

Our free trolley system is great!  It runs from 6:00AM-11:00PM…Just hop on and off the trolley and stop at what will become one of your favorite watering holes (they are really special after a couple of drinks).  You will have fun, keep everyone safe and enjoy some good music.
