Get away in style in Nassau County

Nassau is the most expensive county in America and the most affluent in New York state. The whole of Long Island was once known as Nassau after the Dutch prince and the county still retains the name and colors (blue and orange) of the Dutch royal family. From your Nassau County vacation rental you have a wealth of things to see and do. With 2 cities, 3 towns and over 120 villages, there is something for everyone. From horseracing to historic houses and gardens, vacationing in Nassau County is a classy affair you won't forget.

Country house activities for the whole family

No Nassau Country vacation rental stay would be complete without a trip to Old Westbury Gardens. There is so much going on at this historic site from guided tours of the grounds and museum exhibits, to botanical arts and horticulture classes. You'll find a full schedule of events, including architectural talks through to classical concerts. Fancy something less educational and just pure fun? Bounce! is an indoor trampoline center for adults and children. You can launch into enormous pits of foam, join a dodgeball game or simple see how high you can fly. It's fun whatever the weather.

From Roosevelt to the races

For politics and history buffs staying in a Nassau County vacation rental, Sagamore Hill House should not be missed. The former home of President Theodore Roosevelt is now preserved as a museum for anyone interested in the estate of one of America's most endearing presidents. Built in the Queen Anne style, you can take a tour through the hunting trophy room, library and private quarters or stroll through the gardens. If you're still feeling lucky, a trip to the horse track at Belmont Park for a flutter on the horses is a great way to spend the afternoon.

Long summers on Long Island

The climate in Nassau is on par with other coastal regions in New England. With hot summers and cold, wet winters, the high season is of course the best time to book your Nassau County vacation rental. Sea breezes keep Long Island cooler than other parts of the state, making outdoor activities more pleasant during the warmer summer months. That said, great deals can be had off-season when the weather is a little cooler and, if you don't mind the off drop of rain, you can have much of the region all to yourself.

Seal sightings and urban animals

From the sea to the forest, the area around your Nassau County vacation rental is full of wildlife. To the north of the county you'll find the Target Rock National Wildlife Refuge. With its quiet, rocky coastline and wooded trails, it's an ideal place to walk the dog and, along the way, you may spot several species of birds in the treetops. If you're particularly lucky, you may catch a glimpse of seals basking on the rocks or playing in the surf. In and around Nassau, you may be treated to the sight of urban animals, including raccoon and opossum.
