If you're looking for a weekend getaway, some place less crowded, that's low key, with some New England charm. One that is reminiscent of popular destinations like Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, here's one of the "last great places" to enjoy this summer.
How to get there:
Most islands are best when approached by boat. So hop on the ferry (from Rhode Island, Connecticut, or Montauk) and enjoy the ride.
Things to do/see:
Kayak, stand up paddle board
Rent a bike and explore the island
Spend the day at the beach
Shop in town
Winfield's (for finer dining)
Eli's (we didn't make it there but it's highly recommended)
Three Sisters (cute spot for sandwiches and cookies for lunch)
fudge! (my family made frequent stops to the candy store to get some chocolate and peanut butter fudge)
lobster rolls (go to the place closest to the ferry, it's $10 more than the one across the street but tastes much better)
Blue Dory Inn
