The Appleton Rum factory has been producing barrels of the amber liquor since pirates sailed the nearby coast, more than 250 years ago. If you don’t want to venture that far from the beach, you can take a boat ride to the Pelican Bar, a thatch-roofed wooden shack built on stilts above a sandbar about a quarter-mile from the shore. Jake’s can provide you with a boat shuttle, or you can find a ride in town.
