Long Island is a tourist mecca. With miles and miles of clean white beaches, fine dining, the superb wines and wineries of the East End, there are many opportunities for family fun as well as a getaway weekend for two or even a honeymoon! Visitors may tour the Island's picturesque lighthouses; travel to bygone eras touring the Gold Coast mansions such as Oheka and Falaise, enjoy some cool fun at Splish Splash (www.splishsplashlongisland.com), shop for bargains at the Tanger and Bellport outlets and so much more!.
Vacation will be over before tourists exhaust the varied attractions Long Island has to offer. Taste locally-grown produce from the farmstands of the North Fork or dine at many four and five star restaurants that dot the landscape. Take a dip or tan on the sands of Jones Beach; enjoy a live concert at the Tommy Hilfinger outdoor theatre, or Broadway caliber productions at the Gateway Playhouse or Theatre Three among other venues.
Festivals abound on the Island year round. Celebrate strawberries, apples, pumpkins, sheep, Fall, Winter, whaling; you name it! Stay in a chain hotel or motel, by the sound at Danfords or the ocean at Gurneys; in a charming bed and breakfast, or even camp out! There is always the stately and historic Garden City Hotel, a reminder of Gatsby days and the pre income tax lifestyle! Long Island is a vacationers paradise. Imagine how great it is to live here year ’round!
