If you have never visited Northport, now is the time to go. This charming village on Suffolk County’s North Shore. has a rich maritime history and friendly vibe. Main street is easily accessible. There are many eating establishments and shops, some requiring a step up (due to their age).There is more than enough for all to enjoy.
The town dock is at the end of Main Street. There is a paved parking lot with several handicapped spaces. Two hours of free parking is offered here. If you don’t mind the wooden dock, you can walk to the gazebo at the end, sit on one of the benches and watch the boats come and go in the busy harbor. If there are no seats on the dock, walk back to the park and find a bench facing the harbor. The north shore of Long Island has some of the prettiest harbors. On a nice day like this, we feel lucky that we can spend time watching the tranquil water scene.
Also situated by the water is a lovely park, with paved paths, a children’s play area and concrete tables with benches, During the summer, there are evening concerts and other events.
If you come by boat, you can pull up to the town dock for free during the day! What a treat!
Main street is a nice place for a stroll. There is an interesting mix of stores to browse in. Because this is an historic town, many of the stores have not been renovated. This means that there is often a step or two to enter. Even with this, Northport is a lovely place to visit. Parking on Main Street is metered.
For the foodies, you will not go hungry in Northport. There are a variety of great eating establishments, from Copenhagen Bakery (breakfast and lunch), Skipper’s, Salted on the Harbor, Tim’s Shipwreck Diner (breakfast and lunch). Bistro 44, and Northport Feed and Grain, to name a few.
Just want a snack? There are three ice cream places on Main Street!
Northport is also home to the John Engeman theater, where you will find some of the best theater outside of Manhattan~
We love visiting. We think you will too!
As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to check a venue’s website, www.villageofnorthport.com, when planning a visit, to”know before you go.”
