Freeport Nautical Mile
You get a deep sense of the connection between Nassau County and the Atlantic Ocean when you visit the Freeport Nautical Mile. Stretching out into the boat canal, the authentic promenade is surrounded by restaurants, marine-themed shops, yacht brokers, taverns, a miniature golf course, ice-cream stands and, of course, every type of boat imaginable.
Stroll to the end of the promenade and watch the boats move through the inlet into the ocean. Feast on the catch of the day. Raise a glass. And take in the sunset at one of the many outdoor patio bars.
Want more? You can arrange yachting tours as well as private and group fishing boats. In winter there are seal watching tours. And if you happen to have the bug, offshore gambling boats leave from the Nautical Mile several times a day.
