Established in 1792, the town of Riverhead sits between Long Island’s North and South Forks, at the mouth of the Peconic River, at the juncture of Route 27 and Route 25. This “gateway to the twin forks of the East End” and “marketplace for Eastern Long Island” boasts riverside attractions surrounded by beautiful golf courses, beaches, vineyards, and farm stands.
Alluring waterfronts and ornate architecture form the perfect backdrop for local festivities from annual holiday bonfires to exhibits at the restored art deco Suffolk Theater along Riverhead’s resurging Main Street to the largest street painting festival on Long Island.
Notable restaurants, award-winning vineyards, and craft breweries in Jamesport and other hamlets welcome pumpkin-pickers and wine-tasters in early fall as the Peconic Bay attracts beachgoers in the summer months. Riverhead is also home to the East End Arts Council, the 165-plus store Tanger Outlet Mall, Splish Splash Waterpark, and the Atlantic Marine World Aquarium.
A short drive to the world-renowned Hamptons vacation destination, the famous vineyard of North Fork, and neighborhoods of central Long Island, Riverhead is the perfect location for your forever home, summer house, vacation rental, or investment property.
