Port Jefferson is a wonderful destination for a day or a lifetime! Quaint shops and restaurants line the streets leading to the harbor. Once you arrive at the harbor, visit the marina with its luxury yachts, the Port Jefferson/Bridgeport Ferry, and the famous and historical Danford's Inn. Be sure to stop at Harborfront Park to enjoy ice skating in the winter, and the stunning water view year-round. The Village Center located by the park is also a must-see, rich in the history of ship building and repair.
Festivals pop up in Port Jefferson year round, but the favorite is the Dickens Festival in early December. Dickens characters with cockney accents take to the streets, eateries and shops, and horse-drawn carriages provide a picturesque ride around the village. Children and adults alike will be entertained for hours by exhibits and skits around town during this magic time of year.
