Spring Activities on a Family Vacation at The Menhaden
With longer days and warmer temperatures unfolding, spring is a fabulous time of year to find yourself taking advantage of Menhaden hospitality right in the heart of Greenport, New York.
From hiking and cycling to hopping aboard a sailing cruise—and, of course, marking a sunny afternoon down at 67 Steps Beach or another nearby strand—you’re spoiled for choices when it comes to kid-friendly activities this season.
You might also consider a family visit to the East End Seaport Museum (103 3rd Street, Greenport, NY), just a hop, skip, and a jump from The Menhaden. Young and old alike will enjoy eyeballing the native sealife from Peconic Bay housed in the museum’s 750-gallon saltwater aquarium, plus studying old-school lighthouse lenses and outboard motors up-close and browsing exhibits exploring Greenport’s deep maritime heritage and history.
The East End Seaport Museum also runs cruises out to the iconic Long Beach Bar Lighthouse—nicknamed “Bug Light”—which steered mariners around the treacherous sandbar lurking between Orient Harbor and Gardiner’s Bay and into the safe harbor of Peconic Bay.
Another great nearby destination for families is the Custer Institute & Observatory, Long Island’s most venerable public observatory. It opens to the public on Saturday evenings from dusk until midnight, with friendly and knowledgeable volunteers on hand to guide you around the night-sky starfields and a whole arsenal of top-quality telescopes available to gaze through.
