Riverhead is a town within Suffolk County, New York, on the north shore of Long Island. The Thomas Halsey Homestead and Southampton History Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Paumanok Vineyards and Palmer Vineyards. When in Riverhead, make a side trip to see Duck Walk Vineyard in Water Mill, approximately 34 minutes away. There's lots more to do: revel in the low prices at Tanger Outlets, enjoy the sand and surf at Cupsogue Beach County Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Cooper's Beach, and admire the masterpieces at Parrish Art Museum.

Plan my trip to Riverhead with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Boston to Riverhead is an approximately 4-hour car ride. Expect a daytime high around 9°C in December, and nighttime lows around -1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) to allow time to drive to Montauk.

Montauk is a census-designated place (CDP) that includes the hamlet with the same name located in the town of East Hampton in Suffolk County, New York, on the eastern end of the South Shore of Long Island. Get a sense of the local culture at Montauk Point Lighthouse and Channing Daughters Winery. You'll explore and learn at Guild Hall and The Leiber Collection. Venture out of the city with trips to Wolffer Estate Vineyard (in Sagaponack), Bridgehampton (Children's Museum of The East End & South Fork Natural History Museum) and Sag Harbor (Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum, Custom House Museum, & more). There's lots more to do: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Montauk Brewing Company, stroll through Main Beach, see the interesting displays at Osborn-Jackson House, and steep yourself in history at Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center.
