What Would You Do if You Owned Your Own Island?

I don't know about you, but if I had the money to buy my own island, I totally would.  Now typically when I think of an island, I think somewhere tropical, probably with a few palm trees, and an ocean surrounding the land.  This island is a tad different, it's much closer to home, as it's located just off of downtown Henderson in the middle of the Ohio River.

If I owned my own island, I think the first thing I'd do was build a really nice firepit, maybe a brick oven, and have myself some wood-fired pizza while enjoying a warm fire in the fire pit.  I'd probably put up a little tiki bar with cool lighting too (assuming the island doesn't flood often...).  It would also be cool to own my own island to like row away from people when I was tired of peopling.  Like "oh sorry gotta go to my island" and just row on over.  This sounds like a dream, want to go in on an island with me??

Cheaper Than Some Houses

 

I didn't know owning your own island could be so affordable.  This one comes with a price tag of less than $300,000, which is cheaper than some houses.  The Ohio River island is a cool $289,900.
