Long Island has a rich history and an exciting community. Here are just a handful of our favorite aspects of Long Island.

The character, culture, and history of Long Island makes it one of the most fascinating places to visit and an enjoyable place to live. Our real estate agents love calling Long Island home. The area has so many benefits you can't find anywhere else in the country. From its convenient location to its great amenities, it's a wonderful place to raise a family, start a career, or even retire.

If you're considering a move to Long Island, here are five things we love about living here:

  1. It's An Easy Commute To New York City
    If you like a small-town coastal vibe but still want to work or be close to the greatest city in the world, Long Island is the place for you. Long Island has so many unique small towns where you can enjoy peace and quiet, but it's still only a 30 to 60-minute drive or train ride away from Manhattan. The Long Island Rail Road carries over 300,000 passengers to and from New York City every day and makes it easy to get into town.

  2. You're Always Close To The Beach
    If you love living near the water, you'll enjoy the fact that you're always near a beach on Long Island. Jones Beach is considered to be one of the best local vacation destinations, but Fire Island National Seashore, Sunken Meadow Beach, Long Beach, and Coopers Beach are just a few other options if you're longing for a day in the sun. You won't have to travel far to find a beach when living in one of these Suffolk County homes for sale.

  3. There Is So Much History
    Long Island is one of the oldest communities in our country's history and was home to many people who had a significant influence on our culture. Tour former U.S. president Theodore Roosevelt's home, the famous poet Walt Whitman's home, the home of founding father William Floyd,  or the Gold Coast Era Mansions that inspired The Great Gatsby. Each are fantastic educational experiences. Want to step back into the 19th century? Visit the Old Bethpage Village Restoration for a living museum experience.

  4. There Are Amazing Wineries and Breweries
    Long Island is home to some of the best wineries and breweries on the east coast. Head out to the countryside and visit Macari Vineyards, Borghese Vineyard, or Sparking Pointe Vineyard. You'll see some amazing landscapes and taste some unbelievable wine. Blue Point Brewery, Greenport Harbor Brewing, and Montauk Brewing are some of the island's best beer destinations.

  5. It Has An Unbeatable Food Scene
    If there is one thing Long Island is known for, it's fresh delicious seafood. There are dozens of renowned seafood restaurants all across the island. However, seafood isn't the only thing to eat around here. Long Island also has a highly diverse population, and you won't have to travel far to find any international cuisine you like.

Living in a place you love is important, and it doesn't get much better than life on Long Island. Contact us today to tour local listings.
