About Sag Harbor

Sag Harbor is a small village located in Suffolk County, New York and has an extremely rich history which tourists are still eager to discover to this day. The first settlers arrived in the 1600s, and by the 1800s became one of the busiest ports in the world, still famed for its marine heritage.

Thanks to years of preservation and care, the majority of the architecture from the 18th and 19th centuries still remains, which include the likes of Greek Revival Houses and Victorian homes for the rich.

The area within and around Sag Harbor has a great deal of nature, as well as many endangered species such as the eastern tiger salamander. Nature preserves in Sag Harbor include Barcelona Neck Preserve, Sag Harbor Woods Preserve and Cilli Farm. Here, you may be able to spot mammals such as the white-tailed deer, red fox, eastern coyote, mink and a variety of bat species.

What to do

If you're interested in seeking out the cultural sights of the region, why not visit the Sag Harbor Fire Department Museum? Built in 1833, this building was created due to four severe blazes which broke out in the 1800s. Now, it serves as a museum and displays a wide range of fire equipment and other interesting pieces to view.

There's also the Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum, located in an 1845 building. Here, you can explore displays of marine heritage with boat displays, models and furnishings as well as special exhibits.

If you're looking to see more of the area, you may decide on taking a trip to the local rocky beach known as Foster Memorial Beach. Or, if you're looking for a taste of adventure, the most popular activities here are kayaking and boating out to Long Island. You will enroll in a two-day course which is ideal for beginners.
