NEB TV: Mattituck, Long Island

Ease into Mattituck Creek from the open waters of Long Island Sound and you get the feeling you’ve slipped through a wormhole to the past. This magical North Fork village has worked hard to maintain its rural charm while building an agritourism base that seems to have universal appeal among locals, visiting boaters and landlubber tourists alike.

For Connecticut boaters, Mattituck couldn’t be easier to reach. It’s just 15 nautical miles from Clinton and Westbrook—and Guilford, Saybrook, and Branford aren’t too far away either. Trailer-boaters can launch at the Clinton Town Launch for daytrips or even weekend getaways, as the town allows overnight parking.
