Drive out east for a day of East End fun! Stop in Manorville at Waterdrinker Family Farm & Garden to enjoy their winter wonderland. If you still need a Christmas tree, Waterdrinker is the perfect place to find one! Keep heading east and stop at Rowdy Hall for lunch. Warm up with their onion soup au gratin and a cocktail! Walk around East Hampton town and enjoy all of the beautiful holiday decorations and displays.

From Suffolk County, New London is a great day trip in the winter. Make a day of it and start early! Grab breakfast at Erik’s in Southold for classic Long Island bacon, egg and cheeses or some fluffy pancakes. Head to Orient Point and take the Cross Sound Ferry to New London. While across the sound, check out the Lyman Allyn Art Museum. Be sure to stop in at their café and bookstore. Bundle up and walk around Fort Trumble State Park for the most beautiful snowy views.

If you’re in Nassau County, Westchester is an easy and beautiful day trip! Visit the Westchester Winter Wonderland, where the Kensico Dam Plaza in Valhalla transforms with 2.5 million dancing lights set to holiday music. If you’re up for an adventure, all six of the public golf courses in Westchester open for sledding! Grab your mittens and have a blast. Warm up with some hot cocoa and a delicious meal from Mint Premium Foods in Tarrytown, where they have European hot cocoa bar!

Looking for something to do next weekend? Grab your friends and go seal watching! Set sail on the Captain Lou Fleet out of Freeport. Don’t worry about it being too cold, there’s a heated cabin (and warm beverages) on board! The best part? When you book a Captain Lou Fleet seal watching tour, 50% of all proceeds are donated to the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation. Stop at the Imperial Diner for dinner after and enjoy the best comfort food Long Island has to offer.
