There’s nothing quite like a brisk winter walk to one of Long Island’s historic lighthouses. Some, like the Fire Island lighthouse and Montauk lighthouse are open year-round, so you can actually go in, warm up and venture to the top for an amazingly crisp view on a clear winter’s day.

Tucked neatly between the two forks of our Long Island, the North ending at Orient and the South ending at Montauk, is a hidden gem.  The nearby getaway that is Shelter Island has remained one of Long Island’s best-kept secrets and it’s no wonder; Shelter Island, like many of the sections of Fire Island, is accessible only by riding a ferry.  However, unlike Fire Island, visitors are able to bring their vehicle across with them.
