Birthplace of the stars

As the birthplace of both Walt Whitman and Mariah Carey, Huntington is not an ordinary Long Island small town. As a collection of hamlets and villages closely huddled together, the area around Huntington vacation rentals is green and spacious. Close enough to be within easy access of New York City, yet far enough away to feel rural, Huntington offers the best of both worlds, with plenty to do in and outdoors. From watersports to independent movie nights, planetariums to museums and art galleries, Huntington has it all on offer.

Hit the waters

During the warm summer months, kayaking, paddle boarding and windsurfing in Huntington's Northport Bay are popular activities. Guided tours and lessons are available from several companies close to your Huntington vacation rental, both teaching technique and helping you explore the beautiful coastline. After a long, tiring day on the water you can head down to the Cinema Arts Center, which offers a unique program of silent movies with accompanying live music, classic films and independent cinema. Grab a big bag of organic popcorn and settle into a comfortable seat to indulge in a night of light entertainment.

Look up at the stars

There's a host of museums and historic attractions to discover close to your Huntington vacation rental. The Vanderbilt Museum and Planetarium, set in the grounds of a French-style mansion and gardens, is a great day out for the whole family. Stroll among the manicured flowerbeds and babbling fountains or wander inside to discover artifacts from the early 20th century. The planetarium is one of the most technologically advanced in the US and will wow children and adults alike with its seasonal shows. For art lovers, the Heckscher Museum is small, but packed with everything from Old Masters to American Modernism.

Fun to be had, all year round

Huntington has such a great selection of indoor activities and attractions that it's an ideal place to visit year-round. Like the rest of Long Island, you'll find it at its busiest during the summer months, but a search for Huntington vacation rentals in spring or fall will reward those wishing to visit out of season with big discounts on accommodation. Winter in Huntington also offers lots of fun. Ice skating rinks, Christmas markets with a glass of mulled wine and the town's beautiful light displays make it a wonderful place from which to explore Long Island in the snow.

Listen out for songbirds

Climb up the wooded terrain of Cold Spring Harbor Park to take in views of Huntington on one side and the harbor on the other. The trails, which wind through ancient oak trees and laurel thickets, are a perfect vantage point for watching the spring and fall migration of New England songbirds. The park is also the ideal place to spot several species of owls, hawks and other birds of prey. As a pet-friendly park, those with dogs will find it one of the best places in Huntington to get out and exercise with mans' best friend.
