Why locals love it

Centre Island is a major tourist attraction and is also well-liked by locals. In the summer it can get very crowded. Take the ferry boat to Wards Island instead. Bear to the left after leaving the boat and you will find a tiny neighbourhood of residents. There is an array of odd houses, some well kept and some dilapidated.

Why you should visit it

Travel up and down the streets to see peculiar decorations on the houses and in their yards. It is very quiet here with only local residents. The locals are definitely Bohemian in nature. They take the ferry into the city for groceries and supplies. Click link for ferry schedule.

Special tip

Stroll the boardwalk on the outer edge of the island along the water.

In summer you can bring a picnic, hit the beach, cycle. Winter... not much going on. Would recommend a boat tour of island instead.
