We stopped while spending some time in town. So glad that we did. We just walked down on the pier, and watched the activity on a Tuesday morning. There were Airplane rides, Para-sailing, and gorgeous scenery.

Took a walk along the lake, it was nice and relaxing. Saw swimmers on the lake, so I guess it must be clean as well. Lots of water activities are available too.
