While visiting in Long Island, it was said we had to see the Duck, so we did. Just like York’s Shoehouse or Margate’s Lucy the Elephant, it is something anyone visiting the area should do. No cost unless you want a souvenir, and the man...More

A Long Island landmark for decades. Everyone sees it but not everyone stops. Take the tour. All you need is to walk in the door. Learn about the Ducks history and architecture. Pick up a souvenir.

Yep, it's a must see if you are in the area. I remember as a child that this duck was actually of a poultry farm. The farm's gone and the Duck was moved to it's new home years ago. Bought a Big Duck tee shirt...More

I stopped at the Big Duck because everyone at the hotel I was staying at was talking about it. It boils down to a building in the shape of a duck that was built in the 20's as a tourist attraction to bring people into...More

So much fun & history in a tinny spot. In another life time actually a place to buy duck eggs, this kitschy spot is a landmark worth stopping at if even for a few minutes. Today it's a gift shop filled with local color. It's...More

Don't expect anything extravagant - it's only the big duck. But, it's something funny to visit and take a few pictures. Inside is a small 'museum' - you can see photos of similar attractions, you can learn a bit about a history of this place....More

A fun stop on the way to the Hamptons. Friendly service and some history. Don't expect anything fancy. Definitely worth it for the smile.
