Commerce & Culture
Calverton’s Splish Splash water park offers the best manmade recreation in the area, especially for families, who can suit up and get wet on the 20 water slides on 96 acres. If water slides aren’t enough, there are wave pools, a lazy river, a Johnny Rockets, and even a tropical bird show to fill out the day. For more adult pleasures, J and R’s Steakhouse not only is a favorite for special occasions but also features a popular happy hour, even on the weekends. For more local flavor, apples are the theme at the Riverhead Ciderhouse — belly up to the bar for the extensive list of ciders and beers on tap. For retail therapy, Tanger Outlets houses brands like Armani Exchange, Calvin Klein, and DKNY.
