When selecting dining chairs, you should test the construction and make sure that they don’t wobble. Pick up the chairs and find out if they are heavy. Heavy chairs indicate that they are made of solid wood. Besides that, don’t forget to check the chair joints.
While the food has Hawaiian names, it is basically Mexican food, but it is pretty darn good Mexican food. Wahoo’s Fish Taco is a very dinner around me facility. Since it is located on the strand you will mostly see patrons in bikinis and bathing suits, now that is pretty casual.
There is only one place to get a great dessert. So we went to Vaccaro’s for gelato. When we arrived there were only a few people in front of us. When we left fifteen minutes later the line was down the stairs. Ten minutes after that the line was out the door. So if you opt to head to this little shop be patient. There is also another location at the inner harbor in the Light Street Pavilion if you’re up for a walk by the water.

The Pub has an excellent location. Its bar and dining room entrances open to Lincoln Square, or “the Circle,” and passersby can look in the windows to see eaters enjoying their meals. The building itself is quite pretty. During the holiday season, the Pub is beautifully covered in strings of yellow lights. On weekends, the Pub is only a few blocks away from Gettysburg College, making it a popular bar stop.
Once you get the big box stores out of the way (K-Mart and Wal-Mart), it would then be a good idea to head over the Tanger Factor Outlet Mall. This mall, which isn’t nearly as large as the outlet malls in Birch Run, Michigan, still has tons to offer for any shopper. Even though it has been a while since I’ve shopped there, all of my favorites are still there – the Liz Claiborne Store, Welcome Home, The dress Barn, Book Warehouse, L’ggs Hanes Bali Playtex, and so much more. If you need an unique gift for a good friend or for your child’s teacher, look no further than Welcome Home. It is definitely worth the stop. They have even recently added an Applebee’s to the property.
