Port-Jefferson is a historic shipbuilding village tucked away at the far end of the harbor in the northern part of central Suffolk County, Long Island. The town of Port Jefferson is approximately 56 miles east of New York City, yet seems worlds away. The village has charming tree-lined streets, many shops and restaurants and historic buildings, and definitely a "home town" appeal. Harborfront Park in Port Jefferson contains the historic Chandlery Building, a former ship's store dating back to 1898. Behind it is a play and picnic area complete with ship hack, Penelope Porpoise and a family of friendly turtles. This port town is home to a university, a medical technology park and some of the most beautiful and prestigious homes on Long Island. Attractions in Port Jefferson include the Mather House Museum and a live theater that features musicals, comedies and dramas. The town also sponsors an annual Charles Dickens' Festival, complete with characters in period dress strolling the streets and "making merry," with lots of entertainment, food, games and other family fun found in an old-fashioned Victorian holiday. Port Jefferson makes a unique, tranquil base for a family vacation, just minutes to the Hamptons and all the other Long Island attractions.
