Located amid 14 miles of shoreline, River Dunes offers up accessible waterfront getaways to those weary of inland life and its attendant lack of boats and merpeople. The Hinckley, Grady-White, and Hatteras cottages feature shabby-chic décor with natural wood surfaces, comfortable, antique furnishings, gas-burning fireplaces, and a morning kitchen nook. Each cottage provides a full range of amenities, including WiFi, kitchens with microwaves, refrigerators, Keurig coffeemakers, and king or queen beds. Private porches and quiet, electric-guitar-free rocking chairs overlook a courtyard with Adirondack chairs and a communal, brick-lined fire pit.

The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
