96 years young! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

¡Feliz aniversario a Puerto Peñasco!

We’ve hit that part of the summer – right after 4th of July and just before schools start back up again in AZ (really, late July – are you kidding?) Family vacation time is in full swing, particularly weekends, and there is still plenty of live music, good food, sun and sea to keep us busy.   Note: You may find some businesses in Rocky Point on reduced schedules, and even some out for vacation or readying for some time off as the humidity of August lurks around the corner.  Plus, there have been some pretty intense infrastructure challenges over the past few weeks in town, so please be patient and understanding with each other – as many folks in town itself have been without water for a spell.

Don’t miss!
