Walking Tours along
Port Washington's historic Bay Walk:


On Sunday, May 3rd, the Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society launched our first walking tours of Port Washington’s historic shoreline. Magical History Tours start at the Town Dock, meeting at the red tugboat every Sunday through October at 11am, plus the first Saturday of every month.  

Join a knowledgeable tour guide walking the shoreline while you see and hear the fascinating history of early Port Washington. Topics include the livelihoods that helped Port develop into the town you know today, including shell fishing, sand mining, aviation, the yacht clubs, the tidal mills, the restaraunts, the many hotels and much, much more.
