The Perfect Port Jefferson Itinerary: Danfords Hotel and Marina

When you step off the ferry and onto the streets of Port Jefferson, you can’t help but be enthralled by our town's wealth of maritime history. The waterfront views, salty ocean breeze, and quintessential storefronts will leave you mesmerized by the Long Island charm. Booking your vacation is easy when you already have the perfect itinerary at your fingertips. Here’s Danfords ultimate three-day itinerary for you to have the perfect stay at Danfords Hotel and Marina.

Day 1: 

On your first day in Port Jefferson, it’s important to get the lay of the land and hit the most popular destinations! Swing by the sailor statue in Mary Bayles waterfront park and take a picture with our local stone celebrity. Put a visit to The Village Center on your to-do list, too, and learn all about the town’s history. Make sure you make it back to Danfords in time for Dockside Live to listen to local live music on the pier. You’ll be surrounded by sunset ocean views, delicious cocktails, and friendly locals. 

Day 2: 

A weekend escape wouldn’t be complete without time to unwind. Begin your second day with tranquility as you treat yourself to a relaxing on-site yoga experience. The Danfords yoga class is for guests of all levels, and is included in the resort’s destination fee! After a relaxing morning pampering yourself we recommend taking a stroll down Main Street to explore the unique collection of local boutiques and gift stores. A few town favorites include the Tabu Boutique and The Village Boutique. When you’re done exploring the quaint shops, secure a ticket, kick back, and watch a show at the local playhouse. A Theater Three experience will round out your relaxing day in Port Jeff.

Day 3: 

If it’s Sunday, then brunch is a must! Bottomless mimosas, eggs benedicts, savory carving station, and delectable desserts are just a few options on the brunch menu at Danfords Wave Restaurant. We now accept reservations through Open Table, so avoid the wait and book your table now! After brunch, dive into Port Jefferson's nautical history! There’s no better way to see our waterfront town than from the water, so a boat tour from the Ginnie Marie Schooner is a must! End the perfect day by stretching out your sea legs and walking along the pier at sunset.
