Milleridge Village is located at the Milleridge Inn on Jericho Turnpike in Jericho, Long Island.  It is practically in my backyard, but I had not been there in years.


On a beautiful Saturday night, after having dinner at a nearby restaurant, it was suggested that we go there for dessert.  As we exited the car onto the paved parking lot, we heard music.  We entered the village square and saw people waltzing to the sounds of a banjo band.  The band members were festively dressed in red and white striped barbershop quartet attire.  Besides the dancers, there were many people relaxing on chairs set out for this occasion.


Milleridge Village is a quaint place reminiscent of bygone days.  There are brick pathways to the shops surrounding the square. The…”traditional shops echoing Long Island’s beginnings include a bakery, florist, toy and gift shops.” (website)  Benches and tables with chairs and a gazebo are right in front.  At the bakery we got coffee and delicious cookies to eat while listening to the music.  Murphy’s Cafe has ice cream and other food items. A single occupancy restroom without handrails is located inside. We spent a very pleasant hour in a quaint old time village.


As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, www.milleridge.com, when planning a trip, to “know before you go.”


Update: December 2, 2018 – We went for a holiday visit after someone contacted us regarding the entrances to the shops.  It is quite true that not all of the shops have street-level entrances. Take a look at our description to get the correct information.  We are truly sorry to have given incorrect information.
