Long Island stretches 118 miles east from Manhattan into the Atlantic Ocean. Long Island’s western shore contains the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens. The eastern end of Long Island contains two peninsulas that resemble a two prong fork. The Hamptons are located on the South Fork, including Easthampton – South Hampton – West Hampton – Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor. On the North Fork, there are fishing villages, farms, Long Island Sound and over 40 vineyards and wineries for you to experience, including Greenport – Southold – Mattituck and Jamesport. Dip your toes into the blue Atlantic Ocean, view lobster boats returning to harbor with their days catch, dine in an 18th Century Inn! Basically, you’ll be visiting New England villages and havens, yet you’ll never leave New York state. These breathtaking sites and locations are a minimum 95 minute drive from Manhattan.
