Going to the beach is sure to be the perfect activity to end your summer on a high note.

#2 Sparkman Wharf

What used to be a retail center has been transformed into a park-like environment where you can rest and relax, or catch up with friends. You can choose from a variety of dining options, head to the biergarten for a fresh brew, or you can just enjoy the park like atmosphere and play games. The wharf features live music almost daily and allows you to enjoy the outdoors and countdown the last days of summer.
