Being on the beach while being a small village is one of the best features of Patchogue. The wild blue waves and shimmering white sands of the beach are only a ferry ride away. Fire Island has everything you could ask for while you are soaking up the sun: Good food, good drinks, and a view that is worth the walk. Everything is clean here, and the beach is rarely crowded. There is also a lighthouse on the beach that is open to visitors. If you feel a little adventurous, take one of the salt marsh canoe tours that the park rangers offer.
Dance the Night away
Cool drinks and hot music are a big part of the nightlife scene in Patchogue. Clean bars with large stages make a great place for bands to be front and center and entertain the crowd. Some of the finest craft beers are at these bars, but if you are not a beer drinker, mixed drinks are available, too. Relax with friends while you listen to some fresh music, with tunes from both cover bands and original artists. The atmosphere at Patchogue bars has just the right blend of music, food, and fun. Bands play everything from classic rock to blues.
Excellent, Diverse Di
Patchogue may be a village, but it has the cuisine of a big city. No matter what you are in the mood for, you can find it. First-rate fish and chips are waiting at Reese's 1900 Irish pub. If only Greek food will do for lunch, hearty wraps filled with savory chicken and vegetables are waiting at the Pita House. There is also a smorgasbord of seafood choices in Patchogue. Steamed blue crab, buttery lobster tail, flavorful fish, and succulent shrimp piled on your plate will satisfy even the fiercest seafood craving. Just head to The Oar Steak & Seafood Grill or Beach House Restaurant.
