Buxton is a great place for families, with a toy store, skate park, Angelos Pizza & arcade, and seasonal lifeguards on duty (by the lighthouse)…what else could a family want? Looking for Ice-Cream? Cool Wave is a small shop with a hometown vibe and plenty of room out front to relax after a day at the beach. The other ice cream spot is Uncle Eddy's, where you will have a chance to challenge loved ones to a round of mini-golf.
