6. City Island

Sitting in Eastchester Bay in the southern portion of the Bronx, City Island is a prime destination for those looking for a great seaside experience. Once the home of a thriving oyster fishing and shipbuilding community, the area is now the ideal place to find some of the city’s best seafood restaurants and fun boating and fishing excursions.

Some notable locations on City Island include the City Island Nautical Museum, and 239 Play!, a store that sells unique vintage curios. The old-town style architecture is also ever present as most of the original buildings from the 1800s still stand today. City Island is the perfect spot to visit for a summertime seaside getaway.
