Announcing Walking Tours
along Port Washington's historic Bay Walk:


This Sunday, May 3, at 11am, the Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society will launch our first walking tours of Port Washington’s historic Bay Walk shoreline. Magical History Tours will start at the Town Dock, meeting at the red tugboat every Sunday through October, 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 will 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.
