While certain landmarks and activities are part of the long-loved fabric of vacation experiences for our guests, it’s always fun to check out the new things in the neighborhood this time of year!

We've welcomed several additional neighbors, including shops and businesses new to the Causeway scene, as well as newly renovated vacation rentals and new homes. Here's the scoop on all things new to check out for your next visit.
