Stone Harbor
Stone Harbor is located on a island just four city blocks wide. This town is known for its fine white-sand beaches and Cape Cod–style houses. Visitors flock to Stone Harbor for its ice cream stores, pancake houses, surf shops and Hoy's Five & Ten, the town's legendary general store. Find everything you need for your beach vacation here — board games, beach hats, footballs, kids' toys and even hermit crabs. Nothing is five or 10 cents anymore, and most items seem a bit overpriced, but who wants to drive off the island to find cheaper sunblock?
