Wednesday Evening BBQs on Georges Island

Getting past hump day in the summer can prove to be quite challenging as summer skies and temps beckon for us to be outside. A short ferry ride to Georges Island may be just the trick to help you finish out your work week – Wednesday evenings are all about delicious BBQ!

Georges Island is home to historic Fort Warren, a Civil war era fort known for its granite archways and reputed ghost – the Lady in Black! This 39-acre island grows to 53 acres at low tide and is located in the center of the harbor allowing for exceptional views of surrounding islands.
