We’ve been here before. In fact every summer for the past eight years. Returning to the same place every year creates traditions, favorites and must-dos.

My must-do is a surrey bike ride along the beach, on the boardwalk, winding our way through nearby neighborhoods and dreaming of our future beach home.

Anthony’s must-do are the delicious crepes at Cafe Papillon, offering both savory and sweet, you can’t go wrong.

The kids must-do is Funland. The rides, arcade and games is perhaps the biggest draw. Their joy measured by their collection of cheap stuffed toys, some won by them, some won by strangers.

And the biggest must-do is sharing this tradition with family.
