Greenport — 2 nights

Nestled on the north fork of Long Island within a pastoral landscape of farms and vineyards, Greenport is a historic village best known for its waterfront walkway with a 36-horse vintage carousel as its centerpiece.
Step off the beaten path and head to Gin Beach and Montauk Downs State Park Golf Course. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Greenport: Montauk (Kirk Park Beach & Shadmoor State Park) and Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center (in East Hampton). The adventure continues: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. and enjoy the sand and surf at Orient Beach State Park.

Stretching northeast from New York Harbor to the Atlantic Ocean, Long Island is the largest island in the continental U.S. It technically includes the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, but generally refers to the suburban counties of Nassau and Suffolk exclusively. Known for its cookie-cutter suburban neighborhoods, the island is also home to a wealth of intriguing places to visit, including beaches, scenic countryside, wineries, and numerous historical sites. In the summer months, wealthy New Yorkers flock here to relax in their exclusive Hamptons properties.
