Sail Back in Time
Here at the far western end of Long Island Sound, it's easy to picture a rich history built by fishermen, sailors, and dockhands. City Island treasures its colorful past, and you can stroll right through it at the Nautical Museum. Located in the island's original public school building, this venue is a special step back in time. Carefully curated exhibits include old photos, original maps, and models of different ships that sailed the harbor more than 100 years ago. Museum staff also host wonderful walking tours around the island.
Dine Deliciously Casual
It's easy to feel right at home when you're dining with locals who love to share the borough's freshest seafood. Set your sights and your appetite for any of these island specialties:
- Lobster rolls
- Sauteed scallops
- Fresh stuffed flounder
- Crab cakes
- Deep fried shrimp
- New England clam chowder
Local fishermen keep the island's restaurants stocked with the freshest catch every day, so you can always find seasonal favorites on the menu. It's casual, delicious dining – especially when you enjoy it at a shoreside table.
