Garvies Point Museum & Preserve
The Gold Coast of Long Island on the picturesque North Shore not only houses numerous grand mansions that are straight out of the pages of The Great Gatsby but is also home to many lovely hidden gardens and nature preserves.
We first make our way through the lovely vistas of Glen Cove to the Garvies Point Museum & Preserve, set along the Hempstead Harbor. This small gem of a museum is filled with exhibits devoted to Long Island’s geology and Native American archeology.
Enjoy the special archeology program, browse the museum, or take a stroll through the lovely preserve along meadow paths or wooded trails leading to a rocky beach with prominent cliffs stretching out to the bay.
After our stroll, we’ll visit quaint Oyster Bay with time for lunch and wandering.
Let’s get back out into nature at the Bailey Arboretum, a 42 acre preserve surrounding a lovely estate and home to the world’s largest Dawn Redwood.
Take your time wandering and exploring this beautiful, peaceful setting or find a cozy spot to sit and connect with the natural surroundings
