Great Neck is an excellent place to go to escape the city and relax, especially because its so close to Manhattan.  You can get there in no time!

Despite its proximity to the city, Great Neck and the surrounding area is a tranquil getaway that will allow you to relax and unwind from busy city life.  Stroll the streets and browse the antique shops and galleries.

Take a trip back to the 1920’s and see the area that inspired the Great Gatsby.  Once called the Gold Coast, Long Island’s North Shore was home to many of New York’s wealthiest residents.   Though many of those residents no longer remain, their opulent, ostentatious homes still do and they are open to the public.  Taking a tour of a few of these homes, some of which have become museums, or headquarters for land preserves, is only one of the great things that you can do in Great Neck.

When you’ve finished your tours of all the homes that can help you hearken back to Gatsby’s time, come have a bite to eat at one of Great Neck’s stellar restaurants.  Get everything your heart desires from Greek to kosher Persian, to standard American fare.

If you don’t fancy staying in New York City, Great Neck can offer you everything you need, including a quick commute, without the muss and fuss of staying within the city.  Great Neck and the surrounding area have several great hotels which can see to your needs and make sure your stay is everything you want it to be.

Great Neck is an excellent place to come to relax and get away from the city.  Stay for a while and enjoy a slower pace of life or come for a day and check out everything it has to offer.
