I know there is more to do on the island, but all I've done there is go to Senators games. That's always a fun time even though they usually lose. LOL Games are affordable as are the refreshments.

We attended a Senators game on City Island and really enjoyed ourselves. It was an easy walk from downtown. We got great seats and enjoyed the concessions. Great time!

Great walk along the river and one of the nicest putt putt facilities anywhere. They have done a great job developing this place.
