Just a six minute drive from East Marion’s Arbor View House Bed & Breakfast, Greenport is one of Long Island’s most tourist-friendly stops. This quaint little town boasts a variety of restaurants and shops, as well as a fantastic ocean view. Whether you’re looking to wine and dine, enjoy spa treatments, or simply take a swim in the Peconic River, Greenport is the place to be.
Voted one of the prettiest towns in the United States by Forbes Magazine, Greenport is a fishing village full of rich history and great locals. Once a prominent whaling port, this little town nestled in the North Fork of Long Island is still an active ship-building center. Maritime activities like fishing and oyster-farming are a huge part of daily life in Greenport, so it’s a fantastic place to visit if you have a passion for the sea.
Since the main part of Greenport rests on Long Island shores, it’s not difficult to find delicious seafood in the area. But seafood’s not all Greenport has to offer; you’ll also find art galleries, historic buildings, mom and pop shops, and restored homes of former sea captains. Mitchell Park, which is known as the “jewel" of the North Fork, sits in the center of town and features an observation deck and antique carousel. Simply put, Greenport is never short on class, style, simplicity, or history, making it the perfect destination for a day trip or weekend getaway.
