Take a walk, hike or bike at Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve. With over 1700 acres of land, the park provides a diverse landscape for fishing, bird watching and nature photography as well. The park is open from sunrise to sunset 7 days a week, year round.

For a quick walk - head over to Betty Allen Twin Ponds Nature Park located directly off of 25A and the corner of Stony Hollow Road. Be sure to be on the lookout for the bald eagles of Centerport! Grab a snack afterwards at Hometown Bakeshop down the road - their baked goods are top notch.

The Foodie:

Sweetie Pies On Main: Grab an iced coffee and indulge in a rainbow cookie crumb - sit back and relax on the patio.
