Sight seeing
Snug Harbor was a retirement sanctuary and home for sailors at the end of their careers. It has seen a restoration and now houses many interesting things to see. Set on 80 acres you can browse for hours.
Snug Harbor is a lovely half day trip 10 minute bus ride from ferry. You will find a museum and botanical garden, statues, fountains, duck pond and rose garden. It is home to one of very few Chinese Scholars’ Garden too.
