Riverhead , as the name implies, is located on the north side of the Peconic River in Suffolk County on Long Island. Attractions in the town of Riverhead include the Long Island Railroad Museum and the historic Vail-Leavitt Music Hall, the Riverhead Raceway, Polish Town USA, and a popular waterpark and year-round aquarium. Several beaches are located right in Riverhead; Wading River Beach, Iron Pier Beach, South Jamesport and Reeves Beach. South Jamesport Beach has shallow water, which makes it a good swimming beach for children. Fishing and boating are also available from these beaches. Suffolk County is rich in agriculture, and the North Fork of Long Island has some of the finest wineries in the country, which are great for touring and tastings. There are also many picturesque farms and farmstands in the area where you can "pick your own" strawberries, peaches and pumpkins, in season. Other nearby points of interest include the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum, the East End Seaport Maritime Museum, the Montauk Point Lighthouse and the Big Duck Museum.

Riverhead Weather & Climate

Long Island enjoys a four-season, moderate climate, given its relatively northern latitude-which makes it a pleasant place to visit year-round. It is the largest island adjoining the continental United States, extending approximately 118 miles east-northeast from the mouth of the Hudson River, adjacent to Manhattan Island. Winters tend to be unpredictable and summers can be warm and muggy, but offshore breezes help moderate temperatures. Spring and fall are the best times to visit, when temperatures are mild. March tends to be rainy, but temperatures stay above freezing. April's warming temperatures makes it more comfortable and May is generally a gorgeous month on Long Island, weather wise. September to November is pleasant and mild, and the changing leaves make it a beautiful time to visit.
