Greenport is where most of the "action" is. Shopping. Restaurants. Art. Boat watching. Boat tours. Carousel rides. There are several festivals during the year. It's a real fishing town and if you meander off the main streets, you'll find the older parts: boat building yards, old fishing boats, craftsmen and an old jail that is now a brewery.Recommended for:

A great weekend escape, Greenport is a cute seaside town near the end of Long Island's North Fork. Greenport was once a whaling port, and the 19th century buildings in the center of town now house little shops and seafood restaurants. While in the area, you can also visit nearby wineries or catch the ferry to Shelter Island.

This is a cute little town on the tip of the North Fork of Long Island. It was originally a fishing village and whaling town, but now people come to escape the city, have a nice glass of wine or beer, soak up the sun and just relax. There are little harbor side bed and breakfasts, cafes, shops and bars. Claudio's is the oldest single family owned restaurant that's still in operation in the US. It's seasonal though, so you have to go late spring or summer. Most of the North Fork used to sport potato fields and small, quiet neighborhoods, but now much of the land has been converted to vineyards, golf courses and second residences. It's a beautiful area to go to spend a summer, a week or just a weekend. The wine tasting is tons of fun and we saw quite a few families, couples and groups of friends enjoying a nice Saturday afternoon taste of cheese and vino. Apparently it's quite popular with the bachelorette parties. My favorite wine tasting room was the porch of Peconic Bay Winery, with the sun coming in, live music, cheese tasting plate and funky new blends. If you have kids, don't miss the animals at Martha Clara Vineyards: longhorns, llamas and more. There are various small beaches for walking or swimming along the fork near Greenport.
