Live Like a Local Let us find your destination

Live Like a Local Everyone Wants To Be A Townie! This week we are featuring some of the great Main Streets on Long Island. With dozens of towns and villages to choose from we say it’s time to GET MOVING. Living in a town with a thriving Main Street is in high demand. People love strolling along, window shopping, seeing a show, and checking out the local art galleries and museums. Many of our Main Streets are a culinary heaven for foodies with choices from all over the world. In the mood to dine outside? No problem. Each year more and more restaurants are offering curbside dining. Isn’t it great to sit and people watch as you enjoy your meal? In the mood for a spirit? You can find wine bistros, breweries, and rooftop bars. The culinary specialty stores are another treat – visit the local cheese shops, bakeries, and tea rooms. These amazing towns all have a pulse, regardless of the season. They are jumping with activity. There’s weekly music in the park, farmers markets, festivals, and parades. It’s an open invitation to always having a local social scene. These villages are all steeped in history, many were established hundreds of years ago. It’s always interesting to do a walking tour or visit the town’s history museum. Was it a whaling center? Did George Washington ever sleep there? Did the first resident sail with the infamous pirate Captain Kidd? You will be amazed by what you learn. We are finding people of all ages wanting to move to these towns and villages. Walking the dog, and grabbing a cup of coffee in the morning at the local coffee shop or diner is on everyone’s wish list. How wonderful to be able to go for a quick bike ride to the town park with the kids, enjoy the playground and end the adventure with an ice cream sundae. Into antiquing? Browse the local shop and find your treasure! We encourage you to get out and explore the many towns and villages on our lovely Island, you too will want to be a TOWNIE. Call one of our Signature Agents to show you how to LIVE LIKE A LOCAL. You never know, you just might fall in love with a new destination you want to call home. We hope you enjoy our summer series LIVE LIKE A LOCAL where we will spotlight some amazing ways to enjoy your summer. Until Next Time, Pete, Kathy and your Signature Team
