This island is part of the Boston Harbor Islands national recreation area. You can see some of the island's history as you wander through the ruins of Fort Adams, which was a war post in the early 1900s and a World War II POW camp. You will also find nature trails and vistas that overlook the harbor and mainland. Brisk sea breezes will cool you on the hottest days of the year. A free water taxi to the island is available from George's Island . Summertime camping is allowed with a permit Gates open at 9 am daily.
I also grew up on peddocks island I'm also 46 we have to know each other you are right the island is a great place to visit but i must say its not the island that i remeber seeing all of the cottages sitting there rotting new people who visit the island would'nt belive that 40yrs ago it was a full with its summer residences.I'm lucky my father took 8mm films of that long ago time its great seeing all of those people having a good time i have fond memories of our labor day parades. I use to be the one also to gather up the beach wood for the 4th bombfires.if new people would like too visit bring good walking shoes and water.
I have gone to Peddock Island my whole life (I am now 46) It is very peaceful without the telephones and electricity. It is a place that you either love or hate. There is no running water or electricity. If you want it you better bring it but leave the Gameboys home. You can walk on the beach and see something different every time. My favorite time to be on the Island is on the Fourth of July, you can see the fireworks from all the surronding cities by sitting in one spot. If your willing to wait on the beach with the bugs you can even watch the fireworks from the Esplinade. The most important thing to remember to bring is the Bug Spray -- there are many, many, many mesquitoes around especially in the early morning and evening.
