Publicly run trolley cars visit the area several times a day for a small fee per trip.

The proximity to the ocean is something that brings many patrons to dine in this surf-side city. They enjoy the wide range of international cuisines that are offered, along with the chance to dine alfresco and take in the beautiful scenery. The outdoor bandstand just off Johnson Street gives music and dance acts a place to perform during the evening hours.
