Long Island's Towns & Regions

Long Island’s diverse offerings define “New York City’s Beachfront Backyard” as the ultimate getaway. Each region is shaped with their own unique identity.

History and heritage are embedded into the culture of the North Shore, the site of America’s First Spy Ring, credited by General George Washington as turning the tide of the American Revolution. The South Shore is touted as the Maritime Trail consisting of its white sand and ocean beaches. The North Fork, Long Island’s Wine Country, has been rated by Wine Enthusiast as one of the ‘Top 10 Wine Regions’ in the world and is home to over 60 wineries, breweries and distilleries paired with local farm fare. Head to the Hamptons for glitz, glam and luxury and visit “the end” of Long Island’s South Fork in Montauk for an immersion into surf culture and beachside charm. Fire Island is a barrier island located a ferry ride across the Great South Bay and is a premier car-free destination. On the opposite coast is Shelter Island, a tiny island nestled in between the North and South Forks.
