From White Sands to Denny's is not really worth it. Denny's is on Lewers Street. Probably at a casual pace, 15 minutes walk. There are plenty of better places to eat on the way.

The White Sands Hotel is in a perfect location to walk to almost anywhere. We loved it so much we have booked to go there again this year.
