A popular getaway from the big city

The quaint town of Oyster Bay has a long history dating back to the first Dutch explorers in the early 17th century. When they hit the shores, they found an abundance of shellfish, hence the name. Fast forward to today, and the thriving town, just an hour east of Manhattan, has become a popular getaway spot for those looking to escape the city. Its position on the shores of the sea means there are plenty of opportunities for water-based activities or, if you're a land lubber, that you'll never tire of the coastal trails and views.

Things to do

Fascinating historical attractions

This part of Long Island has some fascinating cultural attractions to visit. From your Oyster Bay vacation rental, you can drive to the Bayville Historical Museum, which houses a collection of artifacts depicting the region's past. If you like natural history, the Hicksville Gregory Museum features one of the largest collections of rock and minerals on the island, as well as 5,000 butterfly specimens, and is well worth an afternoon of discovery. So is the Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery & Aquarium, which is home to an enormous collection of freshwater fish and reptiles.

Activities

Kayak, bike or hike

After you've escaped the city, you can delve into this beautiful coastal region using whichever mode of transport suits you best. Maybe you'd prefer to hike along the rocky trails. Perhaps hopping on your mountain bike to ride along the pathways is more your thing. Some vacationers like to saddle up to gallop along the beach, while others hire kayaks and meander down the waterways looking for wildlife. It may surprise you, but thrill seekers can even strap on sand boards to ride down the beachy dunes. Everything's waiting for you at your Oyster Bay vacation rental.

Weather

Less extreme weather than NYC

The weather in Long Island isn't all that different to New York City. It's bordered by more sea and is less built up which means the summers are slightly cooler and the winters not quite as extreme. It won't come as a surprise that the summer break months are the busiest on Long Island, so book up your Oyster Bay vacation rental early to avoid disappointment. Otherwise, spring and fall can have arguably more comfortable weather and far fewer tourists to contend with. Don't discount winter. There are plenty of cozy spots to hole up while it snows outside.

Natural features

Keep a lookout for pink ladies

Just a short drive from your Oyster Bay vacation rental is the Hoffman Center, a nature preserve and wildlife sanctuary that is inhabited by a surprisingly large number of species. What you'll see here very much depends on the seasons, but great blue herons and woodpeckers are commonly sighted. In the summer months, you'll see the bobbing of cottontail rabbits and dozens of species of colorful butterfly. It's also the nesting spot of nearly 150 resident and migrating bird species. Look out for the pink lady slipper orchids that were once thought to be extinct from the area.
