Long Island is One of the Best Places to Live - Here's Why

We could go on and on about all the reasons why we think Long Island is special. Needless to say, we think it's a pretty great place to live.  Once you hear our favorite things about living on Long Island and how special with think Long Island is, you can come to your own conclusions!  Here goes....

1. Beaches all around.
It doesn't matter where on Long Island you live. There's always a great place to swim, surf, sunbathe and simply relax a few minutes away, from the popular Jones Beach State Park to the remote coastline of Fire Island National Seashore, The Hamptons, and countless smaller and less famous beaches in between.

2. Fabulous scenery all year long.

We love the fact that there are 4 seasons to enjoy! Yes, even the wintery snow that glistens off the beautiful trees all around us.  And of course, the blooming wildflowers of spring and lets definitely not forget the sound of the crashing surf of summer and the vivid colors of fall, Long Island is truly one of the most picturesque places to call home.

3. Close enough to Manhattan (without being too close).

Long Island offers quaint small towns, rolling landscapes, and secluded beaches, but New York City is always there when you get the itch for some Times Square excitement.  You're a quick train ride away from Manhattan when you need some of the action but you can always hop on the railroad back to the blue skies and fresh air of your Long Island Paradise.

4. Fresh farm, organic produce at your fingertips.

From the Queens border of Floral Park to the rich farmlands of Montauk and Orient Point, Long Island is home to countless farms and farm markets, which means you and your family can eat the fresh bounty of the season year-round.

5. Historical Landmarks 

From colonial times to the present, Long Island has a vibrant and storied past that is on display everywhere you look. Check out Theodore Roosevelt's Sagamore Hill home in Old Bethpage or go as far as the most east end tip of Long Island - The Montauk Lighthouse which was built in 1792 under George Washington, making it the oldest lighthouse in NY State.

6. Wine Country

Long Island's North Fork is known to local wine diehards as the Napa Valley of the east, and there are a lot of great vineyards in the Hamptons too. There are at least 44 wineries that welcome visitors to stop in for tastings and tours and they are continually popping up in all areas of The Island!

7. Incredible Seafood

Since Long Island is surrounded on three sides by water, it should come as no surprise our seafood restaurants are second to none. You'll find no shortage of seafood restaurants serving the freshest catch our local fishermen bring in. From Port Washington to Montauk Point and towns in-between, you will find great Island eateries that serve up the bounty of the sea.
