A Treasure Trove Awaits as Spring Draws Near

Diverse people, fabulous art, music, food, wine, and history. Why are Long Islanders loyal to their hometowns, and why do they stay? Tell me why you stay on Long Island.

Look out the window. What do you see? I see daffodils pushing up, robins chattering about, buds swelling on branches. I see Spring. Time to start walking, biking and getting out and about. Time for exploring. Time for tulips. Whenever I think of tulips, as a native Long Isander, I can't help but think of Old Westbury Gardens.

Our Gold Coast Mansions and historic landmarks are a perfect places to spend your Spring days. They provide a multitude of things to discover. Art, music, history, architecture, horticulture, bird watching, water vistas, interior design, and even astronomy. With an abundance varied options, there is sure to be something that captivates you when visiting history in your own backyard.

Check out historiclongisland.com or goldcoastmansionsoflongisland.com for a comprehensive listing and links to the wonderful treasures that await. For every age and every interest, the Gold Coast of Long Island is truly a gold mine.

Laura, Thanks for the write-up. My mom is from Holland, so I grew up surrounded by tulips. They are among my favorite flowers here as well. Sincerely, Vince Kish Director of Communications Old Westbury Gardens
