If I want to spend a few days on an isolated (but not deserted) island, what are my options?
I know that there are several deserted islands near and around New York, New Jersey and Maryland. I am not talking about them. The ideal one(s) I am looking for would have:
- some basic living necessities (a small house or hut, electricity, running water etc.)
- without wild animals (these ones, or those which typically make a horror movie plot)
- be in touch with the world in case of an emergency
- doesn't require to spend $1000s per day
So the question is: Can one go to such an island on vacation?
I am preferably looking near the Eastern coastline of USA.
