Day Trips from NYC: North Fork Wineries

March 18th, 2013 by Katie Pate

If you are planning a trip to New York City, make sure you take a day or two to get out of the urban metropolis and visit the beautiful North End of Long Island. You can drive here in less than two hours (if you time it to avoid rush hour). You can also take the Long Island Rail Road. Greenport is the last stop and where you want to get off!

We would recommend you stay for at least one night, if not two, so you can enjoy multiple aspects of the North Fork. So the first thing to take care of is reserving yourself a room in our romantic North Fork bed and breakfast.

North Fork Wine Tours

Wow - That's a lot of wineries for one little island!

Wow – That’s a lot of wineries for one little island!

Next for your North Fork weekend should be winery tours. If you have a car with you on the island, it is easy to transport yourself from one winery to the next in our small grape-growing region. However, if you took the train or would rather leave the driving to someone else, there are lots of tour companies that will provide not only transportation but fascinating information and insight on the Long Island wine scene. One such group is Vintage Tours, but there are others. When you make your reservations, let us know what kind of experience you are looking for and we can help you make the arrangements. Even if you would prefer a chartered car to set your own route and pace, that can be arranged.

North Fork Beaches

There are miles of glorious beaches in North Fork. Surrounded by the Peconic Bay and the Long Island Sound, you should leave yourself time for a beach picnic, bike ride or fishing trip. To enjoy many of the beaches, your car must display a valid parking permit. When in doubt, check with us and heed to the posted signs.
