We visited the Prime Outlets during our stay. Lots of stores and restaurants for everyone. If you like or plan to shop, the Prime Outlets are a must.

We just went down for some yogurt and to browse the area. We walked around and browsed some of the shops, before walking down to the beach area, which has lots of activity. Really laid back, with plenty of restaurants, shops, etc.
