My 30 Plus Teams Tour staycation took me to a place that I hadn’t been to in years .
59 of them to be exact.
People on Long Island call this village, ‘the end of Long Island’, because technically , it is.
You can take a ferry across the river and you’re in the state of Connecticut .
You discover , as I did, if you’re listening to your radio and expect to hear stations from New York , no such luck.
Try stations from the Nutmeg State, Connecticut .
The village is Montauk and if you look on a map of Long Island , you’ll discover that it’s on the very tip of Long Island .
If you go by Long Island Railroad as I did, be ready for a long ride.
3 hours to be exact, with two transfers to get there going.
My first transfer was at Jamaica – JFK , the next transfer was in the village of Babylon .
Coming back though, I just had one transfer at the last stop, Jamaica – JFK .
If you go in the summer , especially on a weekend or a holiday, expect to see a really crowded train.
When I was little, I went fishing with relatives out to Montauk .
Nothing has changed, Montauk is still known for fishing.
Don’t be surprised to see young and old bringing their fishing equipment on this train.
Technically , the village of Montauk is part of those ritzy Long Island villages known as The Hamptons .
The Hamptons are made up of the villages, West Hampton , North Hampton , Hampton Bays, South Hampton , Bridgehampton and East Hampton .
Montauk is part of East Hampton .
Like many parts of Long Island , Montauk is known for its beaches.
Many of the beaches on Montauk are now private, but you can take pictures.
Montauk’s most famous landmark is the Montauk Lighthouse , but because it’s not close to the Montauk station and I didn’t have that much time to explore, I didn’t get to see it up close and personal.
Every picture you see of Montauk, you’re going to see the lighthouse .
It’s that much of an icon here at the end of Long Island .
To say that I was tired from this 30 Plus Teams Tour of Montauk would be an understatement .
I was and I walked so much in the wrong type of shoes that I got blisters on the back of both of my feet.
But call me crazy, I would do it again .
No, not get blisters on my feet , go out to Montauk .
If I had one problem with the station at Montauk it would be get some benches on the platform.
Other than that, I enjoyed my journey to the village known as the end of Long Island .
