Nassau County

A Seaside Escape Away from the Big City

Premier entertainment venues and top attractions await in Nassau County, the westernmost region of Long Island. For sun, sand and surf experiences head to Long Beach, the ‘city by the sea’ full of West Coast vibes to take part in surfing and beach volleyball. The famed beach at Jones Beach State Park is complete with a zip line course, outdoor games, waterfront restaurant, boardwalk, public pool, splashpad for kids, and Bandshell for live performances.

Catch a show, concert or sporting event at NYCB LIVE’s Nassau Coliseum. Explore the lavish grounds of Old Westbury Gardens and tour sophisticated mansions at Sands Point Preserve. See the home where President Theodore Roosevelt spent his summer days at Sagamore Hill Historic Site. Enjoy delectable cuisine with astounding seaside views in Freeport and Port Washington or dine in downtown scenes with lively nightlife at Rockville Center and Farmingdale.

For car-free service, fly into Long Island MacArthur Airport and travel throughout Nassau County using the Long Island Rail Road.
