Home to pristine beaches, historic hamlets,
superb wineries, excellent restaurants and an abundance of
art galleries and antique shops, the North Fork offers something
for everyone. Within walking distance from The Morning Glory
are several white sand beaches perfect for swimming, shell
and sea glass collecting, or just relaxing.
Also nearby are seaport museums, historic
cemeteries and the famed Horton Lighthouse, which was commissioned
by George Washington. Boating, kayaking, biking, golf, tennis
and an array of other activities are all available for more
active visitors, while those seeking respite and relaxation
can pamper themselves in one of the area's numerous local
Golfers can enjoy a challenging round
of golf at one of two premiere daily fee golf properties:
Island's End, a beautiful 18-hole championship course located
in Greenport with full amenities (631/477-0777) and Long Island
National Golf Club, a spectacular Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
layout located in nearby Riverhead (631/727-4653).
No visit to The North Fork is complete without a visit to
one of the area's world-renowned wineries. A favorable climate
and good soil conditions combine to create exceptional wines
that can be sampled during a tour of one of the numerous local
vineyards. Tastings are offered year-round, with weekend wine-making
festivals scheduled throughout the year. Contact the individual
vineyards for more specific information (see the links at
right) or contact The Morning Glory for recommendations.
Visitors can also enjoy a trip to the
Foxwoods Resort Casino, located on the Mashantucket Pequot
Tribal Nation Reservation in Southeastern Connecticut. The
Cross-Sound Ferry landing is eight miles east of The Morning
Glory at Orient Point. Take the car ferry to New London, Connecticut.
From there, it is a short drive or bus ride to the Foxwoods
Casino. In addition to the car ferry, Sea Jet I, a high speed
passenger-only catamaran, carries 350 passengers between Orient
Point and Connecticut.
A wide array of concerts, festivals and
other events are held in The North Fork throughout the year,
with special programs and activities staged during the festive
holiday season. For more information on local events and activities,
