Alternatively, ride southwest out to Madaket for a beach afternoon followed by a spectacular sunset. On your way there, take a detour south to enjoy the tour at Cisco Brewery and its adjacent distillery and winery. Expect samples and bring your own snacks.

EVENING: Head back to town for dinner so that you don’t fret about making the ferry. iis just steps from the harbor, with a menu of pristine fish. (Tip: The food in the barroom is fantastic and less expensive.) A few blocks away, American Seasons takes a culinary tour of America that will renew your love of country. And families will appreciate the something-for-everyone menu at The Boarding House.

And thus ends your day in paradise. Last ferry leaves at 10:00 p.m. (on Hy-Line). Bon voyage!
