As a bonus, the Boardwalk that crosses the City Beach is amazing for a sunset romantic stroll!

To See –

Located in the historic district right off the Square, the Dollhouse museum features a variety of exhibits that include celebrity dolls, dolls from many countries, baby dolls, Barbie Dolls, dolls depicting religion leaders, Madame Alexander dolls, and other special displays. Everyone who loves dolls will find something in the new museum that will bring back a memory, or create new ones.
