• You can hold your event right on the beach, across the street from Congress Hall. Imagine saying “I do” against a backdrop of waves breaking onto a wide expanse of pristine sand—you might be lucky enough to see some dolphins, too!

• It’s one of the oldest seaside resorts in the U.S. A three-story colonnade, flags, and red-white-and-blue bunting against a crisp green lawn will set you off in true American style. Definitely the perfect place for a military wedding.

• Everything you need is right here at this full-service resort, including a cocktail lounge, night club, fitness room, pool and beach cabanas.
