Mansions & Arboretums

Visit Suffolk County and step back in time to the early 1900s Gold Coast Era, when captains of industry and trade built huge Long Island mansions and castles as retreats from the hustle and bustle of nearby New York City, where many had built their fortunes. From the breathtaking Oheka Castle to the Vanderbilt Mansion, Long Island allows you to get a glimpse of the rich and famous lifestyle.

Explore lush gardens and arboretums where New York’s elite once lived and entertained in grand style.

Many estates, once owned by some of the most famous people from New York, have been converted to public use, such as the Vanderbilt Mansion. Long Island visitors can tour many of the homes and others open to allow visitors to stroll the grounds and spectacular gardens to get a feel for what life was like for the privileged few.
