Walk the brand new, ~mile long board and take in the scenery. It's beautiful. You can also walk out to infamous Charles Island when the tide is low, but ONLY when it's low.

at low tide, walk out to Charles Island, an important part of Connecticut folklore and history, go try and find the treasure buried there! Just make sure to make it back to mainland before high tide!
