Long Island, NY

Whether you visit Long Island for a vacation, long weekend or to attend an event, there are activities and events throughout the whole season. While Long Island is widely known for its beautiful beaches like Ponquogue Beach, Coopers Beach, Jones Beach, Robert Moses or Orient Beach State Parks - just to name a few, there is so much more to the east end.

Many of the beaches are public and open to anyone. After a day at the beach, enjoy a delicious dinner at one of the many restaurants with menus featuring local seafood & farm-to-table ingredients. Many restaurants also offer local wine and beer selections.

Ready to talk wine? One of Long Island’s popular activities is wine tasting. There is so much to choose from when it comes to wineries – the island is home to over 50 of them, and most of them are located on the North Fork. There are places specializing in production of sparkling or rose wines only, but majority of vineyards offer a great selection of local varieties plus their own signature wines.

If you’re looking to stock up on fresh produce, fresh baked pies or homemade preserves, make sure to stop at one of the many farm stands. They are typically seasonal and you will find them on your way out east on both the North and South Forks.

Do you have a little extra time to do some shopping? Local antique stores can be found in almost every town and they offer beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces to decorate your home.

For some quiet time and exercise, Long Island has plenty of hiking trails surrounded by woods and offering peaceful views. Bonus? Some of them are also dog friendly.

Should you find yourself bored on a rainy day, visit one of the numerous historic sites and museums. There’s the famous Montauk Lighthouse, Fire Island Lighthouse, The Big Duck, The East Hampton Marine Museum, Old Westbury Gardens, and so many more.

No matter the season, there is always so much to do. If you’re looking for great food, beautiful nature and unforgettable atmosphere, Long Island is the place to be.
