Inspired by the natural setting and artistic life of Long Island's East End, the Parrish Art Museum illuminates the creative process and how art and artists transform our experiences and understanding of the world and how we live in it. The Museum fosters connections among individuals, art, and artists through care and interpretation of the collection, the presentation of exhibitions, publications, educational initiatives, programs, and artists-in-residence. The Parrish is a center for cultural engagement, an inspiration and destination for the region, the nation, and the world.
This museum is built to look like a barn. It is bright and well laid out inside.
When we visited the museum had a Clifford Ross exhibit showing waves on giants LED screen as well as in print. The LED is different than any other art exhibit I have seen and it was fascinating.
They also had a second exhibit "From Lens to Eye to Hand" which are paintings from a photograph. The details on some are incredible.

We stopped at Wolffer during our three-day wine-tasting visit to the East End of Long Island. This winery is in a lovely location and the building itself is an attractive venue. While you can taste indoors, the back terrace overlooking a carefully manicured and maintained vineyard is clearly the way to go. There are several flights to choose from and are tastefully presented in small decanters with clean, modern-looking wine glasses. The terrace is scrupulously clean, service is gentle, attentive and friendly. Wolffer produces a variety of Whites, Reds and Roses. Among the Reds, we liked the Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir best; the Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling were the most favored among the whites. We didn't try the Roses, but enjoyed the Nobless Oblige sparlking wine.

This little museum was great entertainment for the little ones. They had a variety of activities (pirate ship, fire truck, open play area, painting /drawing room, fishing, clay mounding etc for the kids and although not big it was perfect for a few hours. Kids could even dress into costume while they enjoyed all the activities.

Duck Walk Vineyards encompasses 140 scenic acres. We produce some 35,000 cases of wine a year, and our wines have been repeatedly recognized for excellence in national competitions. From our Vidal Ice Wine made with grapes actually frozen on the vine, to our Blueberry Port crafted from wild Maine blueberries, to our unique Pinot Meunier, we strive to create wines that are distinctive and exceptional. But at heart we are still a family with a personal touch in every aspect of our business.
Spent a very cold afternoon here. It wasn't to busy when we arrived the staff was awesome. Explained everything we drank, kept it fun and light. Even got a bonus sample. We ended up buying 4 bottles. We really enjoyed ourselves here and hope to...MoreThank you for the review. We're glad you had a good time and hope you enjoy the wine. Hope to see you again soon! Cheers, Melissa

Scenic beach stretches 500 feet along the Atlantic shoreline offering a view of historic mansions in the distance.
Loved the beach!!! Only 4 people as far as we could see up and down the Beach!!! Off season (not summer) no permit needed to park. To drive 4 wheel drive on beach a permit is required all year. The beach is our happy place and this did not disappoint!! Loves the glittery smooth sea rocks washed ashore.

We went the first week of June, so it was still practically empty. The bath houses and the snack bar were all closed. But it was still a great experience with an amazing view. We were able to park in the nearby lot for free and hang out at the beach for a while.

We definitely enjoyed our visit to Channing Daughters Winery. The vineyard was beautiful and well maintained. There are wooden sculptures/carvings throughout the vineyard that were created by the owner. The tasting room was small and got crowded during some times. However, the outside had a large grassy space to relax. We did the tasting for $16 which is a little pricy for the area but we were given extra pours and the pours were generous. The woman doing our tasting was knowledgeable and friendly and made the experience great.
We also opted for an additional glass of wine. It was delicious but at$15/glass it was overpriced. The drawback is the lack of seating - they had a couple of benches outside but not nearly enough for the amount of people. The other drawback is there is no food offered on the premises. Next time we will bring a blanket and a picnic basket and try it again.

The Bay Street Theatre offers a little bit of everything: dramatic plays, musicals, bands. It is laid out in a way that all seats - with the exception of the obstructed seating which they disclose - have good views, We have seen countless shows here, and look forward to returning. There is a bar-refreshment area in the lobby and the staff is friendly. The only down side is seeing films here--a few years ago, there was a film series and the screen and sound system were worse than a home theatre.

Nice uncrowded bay beach with at the sand parking. Bring your kayak, your paddle board or similar for very easy launch into calm water. Yes you can swim here too but the rocks may be hard on your feet so consider water shoes.
If you're in the mood for fishing, just walk north so you're out of the way of the bathers.
