Discover the Maritime Trail of Long Island’s South Shore

Family fun and recreation await in the region south of the Long Island Expressway, stretching from the Queens border, east of New York City for nearly 50 miles. The South Shore, touted as the Maritime Trail consists of the white sand, ocean beaches in Long Beach, Jones Beach, Robert Moses Beach and Fire Island. At the beach, head out for surfing, fishing or jump on a charter boat.

Public parks and venues mark the region including Belmont Racetrack home of the Belmont Stakes, Bethpage Golf Course the backdrop of  the US Open, PGA Championship and 2024 Ryder Cup events, Eisenhower Park complete with 930 acres of family fun including athletic facilities and aquatic center, Bethpage Ballpark home of the Long Island Ducks, and the Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater.

Experience luxury and discount shopping at the Roosevelt Field Mall and Tanger Outlets. Take part in the lively downtown scene in Long Beach, Rockville Centre, Babylon and Patchogue with epicurean-driven culinary experiences and a vibrant nightlife. History buffs can explore the Cradle of Aviation Museum and Old Bethpage Village Restoration.
