From Riverside Avenue to Railroad Place, to Charles Street, to Saugatuck Avenue each venue will have something special to offer. Try some brick oven pizza, a specialty soup or a dish from Mario Batali. Try something at Bridge Square's 3 new eateries. Watch a Black Belt Tae Kwon Do demonstration by Westport's award winning martial artists or learn to fly fish. Listen to over 4 bands and stroll along the boardwalk at the plaza overlooking the river. Maybe even take a paddle on a SUP or kayak. There is so much to do for the whole family.
