Sometimes the closer you are to something the less it is appreciated.
Last time i went to centre island was when i was just a wee lad. With my parents and can barely remember what had happened.
For most tourists it’s a must go, for the barbecue and the view of the city.
A few tips:
- skip the line by purchasing your ferry ticket online. We did it on our phone while we queued up for normal ticket purchase. Once you have your e-ticket they just scan it at the booth and you are through.
- Bike rental is not cheap, they will take debit for deposit if you are cashless.
- Wear comfortable shoes and pack some snacks, you are in for a long walk.
- Pack a jacket, it can get cold at night.
