Long Island, New York Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Long Island, at 118 miles long and 12 to 20 miles wide in certain areas, is the longest island on the East Coast. It's just east of Manhattan and has a reputation both for affluence and safety.

Diverse industries coexist in Long Island, from wineries to financial firms. You may want to visit one of the island's wharfs (and you may find a fisherman's fleet or two) or browse one of its over-18,000 stores. Shopping is a popular sport for tourists as well as locals. If you're looking for a restaurant or bar, you will also find these in abundance.

But buildings aren't all that Long Island has in abundance. The island has over 150 beaches along its shores. Of particular note are the Jones Beach and the Hamptons. The Jones Beach is a 2,400 acre park and has golf and an outdoor theater for concerts, besides the six miles of shoreline (and a boardwalk). The Hamptons are one of the most popular summer vacation destinations in the northeast, and are more than the beaches. Many New Yorkers have summer homes here.

The Long Island Railroad and the Long Island Expressway makes it easy for commuters to get around the island or in and out of Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Queens. (Brooklyn is on the westernmost edge of Long Island, and Queens is in western Long Island.) For more information about Long Island, refer to the sidebar on the left-hand side of the page.

Where the Mountain and River Meet. There is something to be said for front row seats … because there are few experiences that offer the same adrenaline rush, the goose bumps, and the sheer exhilaration as being close to the action can. This winter, if it's proximity you seek, there's no better headquarters for your Adirondack adventure than the Whiteface Region — it's the only place you can wake up and be this close to it all.
