The land just across the Great South Bay, adjacent to what happens to be this magazine’s coverage area, is an enchanted thin stretch of land of beaches, dunes, deer, wilderness, boating, fishing, relaxing, eating, drinking and sometimes just having a gay old time.
So Long Island may not be the most mountainous of regions but that doesn't mean there's not some fantastic mountain biking available. Whether you're already into biking or are looking for a new way to exercise outside, read on for the best places to ride in our area.
Long Island is a pretty amazing place. It doesn’t matter where you live or what you’re into, the availability of great food, music, and cocktails is never more than a ten-minute-or-so drive away. We broke down our top-ten area destinations to make sure you’re taking advantage of all this island has to offer.
While everyone has their favorite spot to gunkhole, Long Island’s eastern waters provide a surfeit of spots in which to anchor up which can leave you feeling nearly alone … yet never too far from the seaside action. Here are a few favorites.
With a surfeit of coast and water the East End offers boaters plenty of places to get away from it all, but here're our pick for the top 10 places to go with your boat to have fun or do nothing...and everything in between. These are listed east to west, and all are in the waters between the Forks...you'll want to try them all. So break out the charts (or the chartplotter) and sample the best the East End has to offer boaters.
If you want to visit a quintessential village that represents the East End, then spend time in beautiful Sag Harbor. While having modern-day offerings, it still has the look and feel of a bygone era, with an old-fashioned five and dime store,a movie theater looking like something out of the 1950s, and a friendly, small-town atmosphere. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the town is set on the water’s edge with a beautiful wharf and bridge as its background.
