Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

BOOKSTORE: Book City at the Beach


I love the facade of this Book City, with its funny character welcoming us at the door and outdoor bins reminding me of the kind of old small-town stores where people know your name. Being so close to the beach puts me in the mood to peruse the books on the lookout for my next reading down time. The bookstore is jammed-packed with interesting titles and the staff always thrilled to tell you more about each of them.
