Head to the Dock!
Head over to the Northport Village dock and spend a day picnicking on the shore or shopping around. The Northport dock is located right in town, so there are plenty of speciality shops near by to do some retail therapy. Browse for gourmet olive oil and vinegars at The Olive Tree or stop into Heartichoke for one-of-a-kind home decor and handcrafted jewelry. For the kiddos? Directly off the dock is a dog friendly park where children can burn off some energy on the playground and your pup can enjoy a leashed stroll. And don’t forgot to wrap up your day by the dock too! There is no better place to catch a beautiful waterfront sunset. Pro Tip: Headed to the village between the months of June-November? Don’t forget to stop into the farmer’s market located at the foot of Main Street down to the dock.
