General Travel Information


Leisure travel is fully open. Visitors are encouraged to confirm all reservations and travel plans in advance.


Be prepared to travel responsibly and bring a face mask—just in case.
While statewide gathering and mask restrictions have been lifted, as of June 22, individual businesses may require masks for patrons to enter.


We ask for your continued patience as we navigate through our new normal.
Art Coast life during a pandemic is subject to constant change as new state regulations become enforced or are rescinded. While state-issued indoor capacity limits for businesses have been lifted, some of our restaurants may not be at 100% capacity due to staffing shortages. This may result in longer than usual wait times for tables. Your understanding and patience during this period of adjustment is greatly appreciated. Whenever possible, we strongly encourage that reservations be made in advance.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
