We don't do crowds so weekends are out but on weekdays we often hike the Trolley Line starting at the the Tilcon quarry shipping site near Pine Orchard Yacht Club and ending near the public library in Stony Creek. From there we walk a short block toward the harbor and grab a well prepared lunch at Stony Creek Market, sit on the deck, and enjoy the great view of the Thimble Islands. You can bring your own wine and beer so that can be a real plus. My favorite: the hummus salad (although today it seems a bit smaller than it once was -- seriously, how expensive is hummus?) The simple desserts demand that you give in to temptation. The menu also says there is gelato available: something to look forward to! I know I said we don't do crowds (ie, weekends), but the one time we went on Sunday, we really saw the local fans, loved the smoked salmon with a side of Sunday NYTimes (on sale there)! After lunch, you might want to explore the side streets to the East or around the harbor. It's a great town!
