Cross Sound Ferry

Reviewed By Russell M - North Kingstown, Rhode Island

I've been using the New London to Orient Point ferry service for decades and I will continue using it when I go to Long Island.

This is always much better than fighting traffic on the CT Turnpike, Cross Westchester Expy, and the LIE.

The snack counter/luncheonette is also decent.

The only drawback is that there was no WIFI on any of the boats which I used for the round trip.

Great Vineyard off the beaten path away from commercialized Vineyards that lose intimacy and coziness. This place has great service and even better wine making tasting simple. All of the food options compliment the wine fantastically. Cheese platters, nut platters, and chocolate platters are perfect. The wine is the main ingredient to their charm and family style atmosphere. Vino from the heart is what you will get here..

Sparkling Pointe

Reviewed By gracao2017 - Dover, New Hampshire

Visiting Long Island we decided to stop at this vineyard as we love sparkling wines
For our surprise all the decoration is related to Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, what delighted us as we are from that city and country.
Appart of the pleasure of seeing pictures and memorabilia from our country we were very impressed with the selection and quality of the wines, the knowledge of the people who served us and the beautiful vineyard they have
Would go back any time

Lavender By The Bay

Located in East Marion New York, Lavender by the Bay has been growing the highest quality lavender on Long Island for more than 15 years. We offer seasonal fresh cut bunches, dried lavender, lavender plants, lavender sachets and crafts, and honey from our own beehives. In 2002, we expanded our company by purchasing 17 acres of farmland in East Marion, New York. We have planted twenty varieties of lavender across ten acres of farmland, yielding over 80,000 plants for cultivation. In order to preserve the beauty, form, and peaceful nature of the farm, we must now impose a per person (12 years and older) fee to enter the fields while the flowers are in bloom. This fee goes towards the upkeep and maintenance of the plants, trails, and pavilion. The fee is $8 per person to enter the fields on weekends and national holidays, of which $1 will be donated to a local charity. During the week, the fee is reduced to $5 per person to encourage customers to enjoy the fields during less busy times. The lavender is typically in bloom mid/late June through mid-July, but is ultimately up to Mother Nature.

Great place to take photos and a leisurely stroll. $8 to enter the lavender field. The shop has lavender bunches, soaps, lotions, eye pillows and you can also purchase lavender bushes starting at $6. A rather hearty bush was $30. Plan to visit other places in the area. Approximately 1 hour or so visit. The people in the shop were friendly and knowledgeable.

Antique Carousel

Reviewed By Jundullah

Great little place... Took our 1 year old. We enjoyed a lot. The ride was really nice. Small little town with lots of friendly people. Parking gets a bit tough depending on the time of the day. The ocean view next to the carousel is nice. Some kids were skate boarding in the deck, which was cool. Lots of farms on the way there.
The carousel rides were $2/pp cash. Under 3 was free. Don't miss it. Go. Saturday was open till 9pm.

The Old Field Vineyards

Reviewed By Steve T - Sayville, New York

We've been here several times. The wine is good, the owner is one of a kind and the experience exceptional. The place is off the beaten path of many of the wineries. It is actually for those who really appreciate what the real wine growers do as a passion... not as a 'drunken stop on a wine tour' . Not a winery to be passed by or overlooked.

Oysterponds Historical Society

A museum complex that consists of the Village House, which is a 19th-century boardinghouse, and Civil War material, toys and dolls, and the Hallock Building with exhibits of ship paintings, scrimshaw and more.

Reviewed By ronacom13 - New York

On tiny Village Lane, in the center of Orient, is the historical society. There are often art shows in the Swanson Gallery (especially in summer). There are also several well-preserved buildings from early Orient days. Village Lane itself is like a photo album of a 1950s American street. There's even an ice-cream parlor and a general store and, except for the post office, that's all.

Greenport Harbor Brewing Co.

Reviewed By Clubess1 - Lido Beach, New York

For $10, we three sisters tried 5 different beers (and kept the glass), sat by the sunny windows, kicked back, chatted, shared our opinions on each beer, and had a great time. One sister who loves IPAs, loved the two she tried, I loved the wheaty beer and the sour citrus, almost lemonade-like Pure Sunshine, our third sister liked the porter. So, we were all very happy. The second floor tasting room has an open, welcoming feel to it, big windows bring in sunlight and views of the neighborhood, the staff member there knew her beers quite well and was very engaging. The guys working downstairs let us take pictures inside the vat area and, what impressed me the most, was that you could see them, taking a break and drinking their just-made beer.

Horton Point Lighthouse and Nautical Museum

Visit the 1857 lighthouse and its accompanying museum that offers a unique collection of marine artifacts such as sea chests, paintings, maps, scrimshaw and photographs.

Reviewed By EasternWillotts - Southold, New York

The Horton Point Lighthouse is a North Fork gem well worth searching out. This restored historical structure sits on a high bluff on the Long Island Sound. From the lighthouse tower Connecticut is clearly in view, and one can see for miles both east and west. The museum inside the building has some very interesting and rare items, and the spacious grounds offer picnic tables and trails. Horton Point Lighthouse may be a bit tricky to find, but it is not to be missed.

Kontokosta Winery

Reviewed By BarbaraAnn_22 - New York City, New York

Between my daughter, her friend and tdme, we tried almost all their wines as we each tried different flights. My favorite was the Viognier; they liked the cab franc and the red blend. Servers were relaxed and friendly. Take the time to walk to the Shore-plenty of seating outdoors.
