Around Long Island

Plan your next trip by train and experience the excitement of Long Island, NY.


CoupleLIBeach.pngJust outside of New York City, you'll find some of the top-rated ocean beaches in the country and the quaint seaside villages of the world-famous Hamptons.

Easily accessible via the Long Island Rail Road (the nation's largest commuter railroad) from the Amtrak stop in Penn Station; most hotels will pick you up at a Long Island Rail Road train station but call ahead. Or you can rent a car, or take the Hampton Jitney from NYC to several destinations on Long Island.

How about a horseback ride on the beach at sunset or a bicycling trip through the glamorous Wine Country? You could set out on a fishing adventure, hike to the top of a lighthouse, or enjoy dining at a harbor-side restaurant.

If adventure is what you crave, you'll find kayaking, surfing lessons, sky-diving and so much more. Or venture out on a hike through a 300-year-old Sunken Forest located just behind the beach dunes of Fire Island.FireIsland.png

Or for a more relaxing adventure: take a sailing lesson aboard a private sailboat. And the avid golf traveler will find miles and miles of fairways on some of the most challenging golf courses.

Like history? Visit sites connected with George Washington's 'Culper' Spy Ring. Visit the homes of past presidents, poets and artists, including President Theodore Roosevelt, Poet Walt Whitman and Artists Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner. Or tour the mansions of Long Island's Gold Coast era, depicted in The Great Gatsby.

There's lots of fun for kids too. From a children's museum, aviation museum, and maritime museums to the world-class aquarium, wildlife parks, game farms and one of the top-rated water parks in the country.

Long Island, NY is waiting to be explored.
