Grocery Stores Nearby Captain’s QuartersThere is a good selection of grocery stores that are close to Captain’s Quarters and stocking up your resort room’s kitchen cabinets is a great way to keep the costs of a vacation down.
But if you’re checking in on a Saturday or Sunday you should know that larger grocery stores in the area such as Wal-Mart and Food Lion pretty regularly have very long lines at their checkouts as many visitors chose to do their grocery shopping right after check-in, in addition to the normal weekend traffic from locals.
