Outdoors

For a small town we have plenty of things to do to keep you occupied. We have museums that tell the story of our culture and history and also we have outdoor attractions to explore our nature. Allow yourself to be curious and explore our Town.

Since we are a fishing community, you may want to bring your fishing gear and try your luck for the catch of the day.

Please keep all pets on a leash and garbage disposal units are available for their waste.

See below and to the right for a selection of places available to you.
