The Sandy Hook Light is the oldest continuously operating lighthouse in the United States! There is more than just a touch of history to be found at Sandy Hook. From architecture dating back to the first days of U.S. independence, homes from the Civil War era and even landmarks and artillery from WWII – there is so much see and experience.
Promenade with Your Pooch!
After your ferry ride you can relax on one of the many beaches, enjoy eclectic cuisine from food trucks that have been invited in, and tour the history with the park rangers. Many shorebirds come here to nest and if you are a bird watcher, you can download a list of birds to find at Sandy Hook. Some are even endangered and for generations have made Sandy Hook their nesting grounds.
Sandy Hook is pet-friendly, and you can have your pooch take a dip in the surf (on the bay beaches). You can even find just the right spot and on the right beach enjoy the beauty of the New York City skyline.
A Taste of The Upper Crust
After your day at the beach, you can hop back on Seastreak and head over to the East End of NYC. Catch a short cab ride over for a luxurious dinner with one of the chefs from Food Network’s Chopped. Entrepreneur Ryan Sasson has partnered to open Ainsworth Park at 111 East 18th Street brings American cuisine to new heights in this upscale sports bar and restaurant. Watch your favorite team on one of their 65 TVs or relax with drinks on their 60ft patio in the heart of Union Square.
Be a Star and Live it Large!
You can rub elbows with the rich and famous while dining. Liam Hemsworth and Sean Lowe, along with Stephen Baldwin, have been known to stop in.
It all starts with a short ferry ride on Seastreak, and you could be enjoying a day at the beach and an evening dining with the stars!
Sea you soon!
