Long Island is 118 miles long, which makes it the longest island in the United States. Even though it is right next to the world-renowned New York City, this spectacular Island still holds its own when it comes to attractions. With the elegant Hamptons, exquisite restaurants, powder-fine beaches, and much more, Long Island locals have a lot to be proud of.
Our Long Island Limousine Service, as the name suggests, has proudly been in operation in this charming island for a long time and, as such, we have come up with several reasons why we consider it an honor to serve here and why residents should be proud of their Island.
Long Island is lucky enough to have a microclimate of its own, similar to the climate in Bordeaux, France. In the East end of the island, you will find one extensive vineyard after another. What’s amazing about the wines produced from these vineyards is that they are quite affordable, yet they are of a high quality. As a matter of fact, most Long Island wineries organize free wine-tastings events with complimentary entertainment. You can also book some of these vineyards for personal events such as weddings, where venues are set against the backdrop of acres and acres of beautiful grape vines.
Beaches and Extraordinary Summers
The beaches are part of what makes Long Island so spectacular and its summers legendary. There are massive beaches like Jones Beach and Robert Moses Beach and there are smaller ones like Huntington Town Beach and Lido Beach that are everywhere; it’s no surprise, we are talking about an island after all. From the three-mile powder-fine sands of Long Beach to the crashing surf of Montauk, Long Island undoubtedly features some of the world’s best beaches, making it one of the world’s most alluring summer destinations.
The Food Scene
Long Island is typically ranked second to Manhattan in terms of their dining scene. Nonetheless, Long Island offers visitors and locals a rich food culture, which can be attributed to Long Island’s diverse population. The population is composed of Polish people, Chinese, Italians, Indians, Russians, and more.
You can try the Asian-themed Ariyoshi restaurant, which was previously ranked Long Island’s best restaurant by The Culture Trip. Or you could try Manducatis restaurant, which is a family-run Italian-inspired restaurant that has been in operation since 1977. Alternatively, for a taste of spicy Mexican cuisine, you can head over to Casa Enrique.
The Craft Beer Scene
Roughly six years ago, the craft beer movement finally hit Long Island, and evidently, Long Island residents took to it like fish and water. The number of microbreweries in Long Island has since tripled; the most prominent of these being the Blue Point Brewing Company in Patchogue. All around Long Island you will find mini-sized breweries producing delicious IPAs, ales, stouts, lagers, and more. You can’t go wrong with this island’s craft beer.
