Schoonmaker Beach is a bit farther from downtown, but still doable on foot and well worth finding. My son and I have whiled
away many sunny mornings here, wading in the bay and watching sailboats.
The beach bumped up to our number one favorite in April with the addition of Le Garage, a French bistro steps from the sand and, hands down, the best new restaurant in town in ages. Grab a seat next to the roll-up glass garage door and definitely try the mussels Provençale.
