Old Towne is home to the acclaimed Pointe Hotel, one of two hotels on the island. The Vue Pointe's Conference Centre is the venue for a host of functions, concerts, stage performances, wedding receptions, meetings, workshops and conferences. The hotel's tennis courts near Old Road Beach have been partially refurbished, and are in full use. From Old Towne, on a clear day, one can get a spectacular view of the volcanic dome in the distance, although clouds very often hide it. Old Towne and Olveston are close to Salem, with its shops and supermarket, so they are also convenient for shopping. All three areas are easily accessible from the main road that runs north to south.
