Year-round residents live in the many cottages in the part of the peninsula known as “God’s Country.” Extended families that have been living on the peninsula for years are a mainstay, but new residents are also welcomed and have a tendency to stay in the area after being exposed to the gorgeous ocean views.

Area restaurants include Manet Lunch and Louis Restaurant (closed temporarily). A recent addition, and a family favorite is Hough Many Scoops.
