Mattituck Commerce & Culture
Head in after hours spent asea or at the beach and discover a buzzing community. Even as Mattituck’s growth continues, the hamlet retains the feeling of a close-knit small town. Indulge in homemade ice cream scoops, catch up on your summer reading list via the public library, or catch a stage performance at the local theater. Love Lane is an absolute must, whether Mattituck is where you live or simply where you’re visiting for the afternoon. The cherished thoroughfare runs perpendicular to the LIRR station and offers a beloved assemblage of locally-owned establishments — think farm-to-table cuisine, flower shops, jewelry boutiques, and the like. Long Island’s celebrated wine country encompasses the area, with sips to savor at wineries within Mattituck, plus several more in nearby hamlets and villages. Mattituck’s annual Strawberry Festival is as sweet as its namesake, typically occurring on Father’s Day weekend and delivering various delectable strawberry-based confections.
