We are often asked what kinds of things there are to do around Shell, and in an effort to provide a bit more information to our guests, I’ve compiled some information along with links (when available). Hopefully this will help you plan your trip! I’m sure there is much more than what I list here, but you’ll just have to come see for yourself! I’ll add more as I learn of them. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
