a.k.a Across Long Island Sound

Ever get in your car and don’t know which direction the fun is? Our Town Crier has made four lists to lead you to fun in every direction, North…South…East…and West of Route 95!


Take the Ferry out of Bridgeport (or drive, if you prefer) to Port Jefferson...a great place to visit in the summer!! Point East brings you to the beautiful town of Port Jefferson which is only a ferry ride away! There are great restaurants and shops to check out, beaches and islands to explore!
