Winter Activities

While it's best known for its white-sand beaches in the summertime, Long Island is an Incredible four-season destination. In the winter months, the region transforms into a glistening getaway filled with fireside fun, charming festivals, outdoor adventures, indoor entertainment and much more. With slimmed-down crowds and an affordable winter edge, the hotels and inns, spas and wineries around the region offer cozy escapes that can cure those winter blues.

Revel in the season by ice skating at one of Long Island’s many outdoor ice rinks or head to a historic theater to see Broadway caliber talent. See an extravagant holiday light display or have a gilded age experience with a tour of a Gatsby-era mansion. Savor the small-town charm of seasonal festivities across the region’s downtown villages like Dickens Festival in Port Jefferson or the annual Winterfest series.
