Small island off coast of CT, used to fish in the sound on the back side of the island. Basically it is a retreat area for long established wealthy estate type homes. Not sure what you are looking for, but not really a tourist island. Some large bunkers off the beach that had huge cannons protecting the coast back in the war, and really a beautiful place.

Default fishers island

Fishers Island is not a good place to visit if you don't know anyone that visits ona regular basis. It is mostly a private island that is "off limits" to the average joe. Another island which is just a little farther off the coast of CT is Block Island. This is a very nice place with much more to offer in regards to shops, (friendly) people, etc... I would check that out instead. Good luck!

I remember yrs ago taking a friend's boat
out there to a bar...but that's about it.

Watch Hill, RI, Block Island, RI, Cape Cod, MA
or Martha's Vineyard are desireable spots to vacation!
