LIRR Escorted Tour: Montauk Lighthouse

3 stops for 1 price!

103 days left (10/8/22)


Take a trip to Montauk, the ultimate seaside community located at the tip of Long Island, without the stress of a long drive or planning your day. After your train pulls into the station, you will board a bus to “the End”, making stops at three classic sights: Montauk Village, the Montauk Point Lighthouse, and Gosman’s Dock. 

Take a breezy stroll through Montauk Village, where you’ll find snacks, any essentials you may have forgotten, and unique local gifts from boutiques, all just steps from the beach. 

The Montauk Point Lighthouse was the first lighthouse in New York State and is one of the oldest active lighthouses in the U.S. today. Climb to the top or stick to ground level and explore the gift shop, museum, and surroundings in Montauk Point State Park. 

Gosman’s Dock is located right at the watery intersection of Montauk Lake and the Atlantic Ocean, so you’ll get water views no matter which way you look. The area features plenty of shops, treats, and Gosman’s Restaurant. Sit inside, on the expansive patio, or take it all in from the Topside, where you’ll catch plenty of boats heading out to sea. Afterwards, wander over to the beach and take a walk on the jetty.
