Long Island See Fall Colors
One of the best parts of autumn is the opportunity to see beautiful fall foliage. It's just one of the many reasons our real estate agents and clients love to live here on Long Island.

The brilliant yellows, reds, and oranges of fall are a wonderful sign of the turning of the seasons. It might surprise you just how many opportunities Long Island offers to see colors up close.

Of course, many communities maintain a rich assortment of beautiful trees that you can visit any time of year. Public parks are especially precious here on Long Island.

However, there are fall sights to see far beyond your local picnic ground.

Let's look at six of our favorite places to see Long Island's fall colors:

  1. Planting Fields Arboretum
    Formerly a historic estate on Long Island's beautiful Gold Coast, Planting Fields is now one of the area's leading arboretums. It sprawls across more than 400 lavish acres, containing several varieties of formal gardens. Manicured trails will lead you to and fro around the various historic buildings, some dating back to the height of the Gilded Age in the early 1900s.

  2. Sand Point Preserve Natural Trails
    These trails are open all year round from 9 am to 4 pm and feature some of the most brilliant fall foliage in Long Island. Six marked trails are spanning over 200 acres, bring you to such attractions as the Gould-Guggenheim Estate and Falaise. The gardens are known for their prize-winning rose bushes – 1,500 in all – as well as its fountains that illuminated at night.

  3. Caleb Smith State Park Preserve
    If the other options on this list aren't quite enough for you to get lost in, why not range across more than 500 acres? This state park attracts visitors at every change in the season, and fall is easily the most breathtaking. In early fall, there's still time to enjoy fly fishing on the Nissequogue River. Bird watchers will also find plenty of feathered friends in those gorgeous trees.

  4. Cedar Island Lighthouse
    Built in 1893, the Cedar Island Lighthouse once protected the shores of Long Island and the ships that plied the waves nearby. It continued its service until 1934. Standing right on Sag Harbor, it watches over some of the area's most pristine land. Although the Lighthouse itself is in the midst of a significant, long-term restoration effort, foliage-watchers can still visit the area.

  5. Wildwood State Park
    Wildwood State Park has the distinction of offering what's perhaps the best view of the Long Island Sound located on public land. Situated right on the North Shore, in picturesque Suffolk County, it features more than 600 acres of wildwood forest to explore. Each area offers an explosion of color, and you won't want to miss the spectacular panorama from atop the bluff!

  6. Quogue Wildlife Refuge
    Last, but certainly not least, there is the premium option for the night owls among us. Quogue Wildlife Refuge is a nonprofit preserve of 300 acres founded in 1934. It is open every day of the year from sunrise to sunset and is well known for its night hike. This exceptional 1.5-mile tour takes approximately 60 to 90 minutes; no flashlights are used.

If you want to see the Long Island's fall foliage in your own backyard, then Laffey Real Estate is the real estate team for you. We'll provide you with all the help you need to find your Long Island home.
