New York’s Long Island is home to almost 20 lighthouses, most of them spread along the northern shore or up at the east end on the North Fork, also known as wine country! Touring the Lighthouses of Long Island Wine Country is a great and romantic getaway.
No Long Island vacation would be complete without at least some time spent investigating the wineries of the North Fork. Long Island’s North Fork is home to nearly 40 wineries and has long been considered as one of the best viticultural areas in the country.
Wineries, while one of the biggest draws to the area, are hardly the only North Fork attraction, however. Long before there were vineyards or a wine country to be enamored of, Long Island was primarily known as a port and for its abundant fishing. Consequently, the Long Island Sound shoreline is dotted with lighthouses.
