Long Island Travel Guide: 124 reviews and 203 photos


Well the pictures look great and i love looking at them stuck on my wall at work, but Long Island didnt do it for me at the time I was there. It might have been because it was freezing and completely dead like a ghosttown when i was there - and it was summer ? Very odd weather for that time of year i'd say.

Standing at the Montauk lighthouse gave me such an eery feeling, it was so chilly, so quiet with nobody in site - it was like i really was standing alone at the ends of the earth.

I wouldnt recommend going to Long Island for the beaches, (.....but then maybe Ive been spoiled by Australias coastal beaches and waves.....)

I especially loved the big pancake breakfasts and the cute white churches dotted around the place.

Everything is from another era, so quaint , so peaceful. If youre feeling stressed out, its a good idea to go to Long Island to get away and relax.

The wooden houses and white wooden churches were always rather fascinating to me.
