It wouldn’t be a day trip to Long Island in your NY rental car without a little (or a full day of) shopping, wining, and dining. Long Island, NY is known for its vineyards, quaint shops, and restaurants. You would be amiss not to try at least one.

Shopping

From outlet malls to one-of-a-kind shops, Long Island has many different shopping options. Try the Tanger Outlets at either Riverhead or The Arches if a good bargain on brand-name items is your goal. However, if you’re looking to find a local piece of art or unique gift, many Long Island villages and towns have quaint shops and galleries for you to peruse.

Vineyards

Named one of the Top Ten Wine Regions in the World, Long Island is home to many vineyards. Visitors from NY may enjoy renting a car and spending a day at one of the 30 Long Island vineyards. You could even plan a series of day trips with friends to explore the wineries. Check out Discover Long Island’s list of local vineyards.
