LoriW30's City Tips

  • Some of the best places are tucked away and aren't flashy, but the food is the BEST!
  • 1st time visitors should always ride the Conch Tour Train for history and a tour of the Island.

    Best Fish Sandwich on the Island!!! Ask if they have grouper. The food here is great. You cant get anything that isn't delicious. This is our all time favorite place to eat. A grouper sandwich, conch fritters and a homemade limeade. Doesn't get any better.
