Wine Vineyards, Sprawling Beaches & More: Delve into Long Island During PGA Championships

For the first time since 1939, the PGA Championship will be held on Long Island! The major golfing event will be held at Bethpage Black for its 101st installation. Over in Long Beach, we’re excited to host guests from out-of-town.

Make the most of your trip by exploring all that Long Island has to offer, from wine country to miles of beaches. And if you want to partake in some golfing of your own, make sure to visit our local golf courses.

Wine Country & Local Breweries


The Long Island region boasts over 50 wineries. Our maritime climate helps to produce over 20 grape varietals, which makes for a diverse selection. Book a wine tour in advance or plan a day trip to enjoy a glass of red wine made with old-world Petit Verdot grapes, or a crisp, white Muscat. Top wineries include Wölffer Estate in Sagaponack, Bedell Cellars in Cutchogue and Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard in Calverton.

If you’re more interested in craft beer, local breweries abound! Check out our favorite tasting rooms using our local craft beer guide.

A Day at the Beach


We may be partial, but Long Beach is the most pristine on Long Island, complete with a two-mile boardwalk and lots of sun in the summertime. At Allegria Hotel, you can enjoy terrific views of the Atlantic that you won’t find elsewhere. Our beachfront hotel also includes our signature restaurant, Atlantica, so you don’t have to go far for great seafood (best enjoyed with sunset). Take a look at our accommodations before booking with us! We’re the only hotel located right on the water in Long Beach and we’re just blocks from downtown.



The Long Island food scene is just about as diverse as the five boroughs, but seafood certainly reigns supreme! Feast on little-neck clams, lobster, scallops and cod in upscale restaurants or humble seaside joints. If you’re staying in Long Beach and you’re on a quest for seafood beyond the typical, consider Lost at Sea. The downplayed restaurant at 888 W. Beech St. has masterfully-prepared seafood created by executive chef Alexis Trolf.

New York City is less than an hour away, but if you’re looking for the same variety and something a bit more laid back, Long Island’s the place. Roosevelt Field in nearby Garden City is one of the largest shopping malls in the country, and with its size comes a wide selection. Shop Apple, Bloomingdale’s, Burberry, Michael Kors and more.
