Ideal Long Island route?


My boyfriend and I are driving from New York up to Newport later this month, and have been recommended to take this journey via Long Island, instead the busy 95 of up along the coast from NYC.

Could any of you recommend a nice (perhaps scenic if possible?) route to travel by from New York and what would be the best place to take a ferry to New London from, - Montauk or Orient Point?

Hoping for some input and/or ideas :o)

Kind regards,


Queens, New York

Just to clarify, this is the forum for Long Island City , which is a small neighborhood in the western part of Queens.

Long Island is the acutal island itself, encompassing Nassau and Suffolk Counties.

I'd repost this on the forums for towns on Long Island, such as The Hamptons, Easthampton, or on the New York City forum, too. The NYC forum is busier and sometimes discusses Long Island driving.
