    Now that your beaches are open may try and book something for Memorial Day weekend as a last minute getaway? The Dunes Manor still open and running as of today?

      Hotels are allowed to open as of this weekend. Some may not open until next weekend. It’s best to check with each individual hotel to see what their opening dates are.
