Art's offers 4WD tours that are surprisingly informative and scenic. And talk about local – the same family has been running these tours since 1946. The basic hour-long daytime tour takes you along a remote stretch of beach before heading off to explore the dunes. For more drama, take the two-hour sunset tour (add a clambake option for extra local flavor).

There are other cool tours: to Race Point Lighthouse, kayaking Old East Harbor lake, fishing, sailing and amateur photography. Call for tour schedules and bookings.
