The island is a haven for wildlife and a photographer's dream. You’re pretty much guaranteed a good time here if you love nature, the outdoors, and anything to do with boating, kayaking, art, and wildlife. Lobsters are pretty important here too, being the mainstay of the economy. You can explore nature trails, see coves, and visit the 8 different lighthouses that can be found on the island.
There is a strong artist community here too, and many open studios, galleries and markets where you can discover the creative flair of the island on display.Food here is strong on local, fresh ingredients and the array of choices is wonderful.
People stay in Stonington, near the harbor or anywhere with a lovely view (which is honestly anywhere on the island).
