Want to meet someone in Port Washington? Then get out and get involved. A beacon for local pride is Landmark on Main Street, a shuttered school that residents rallied to turn into a community center and non-profit theater. Or show your support by shopping at the clothing, jewelry and book stores that line Main Street.

The beauty of this peninsula town on Long Island Sound once attracted New York City's super-rich. For a look at how old money used to live, head up the Neck to Hempstead House and Castle Gould, two of the last remnants of the island's Gold Coast. Or stay in town where Port Washington's shores still shimmer with beaches, marinas and yacht clubs for intimate rendezvous.
