Christmas House Long Island
The Christmas House experience is one like no other. Walk through its 10 rooms filled with Christmas lights, sounds and holiday vibes! You better be on Santa’s nice list, because Daddy Noel will be available to snap an Instagrammable pic. The train leaves soon, so claim your ticket to the North Pole. 1241 Old Country Road, Riverhead / Website
Hanukkah, oh Hanukkah, come light the Menorah on Nov. 28 at 5 p.m. East Hampton Herrick Park. Those who can't get "lit" on that date can also do so at the Amagansett Fire Department on Dec 2 and at Montauk Village Green on Dec 5. Chabad of the Hamptons brings a socially distant, joy-filled event on the holiday that will leave you with high spirits.
Topping Rose House
This list would not be complete without mentioning Topping Rose House. Their beautifully decorated and definitely Insta-worthy grounds and holiday events are a must this season. One Bridgehampton - Sag Harbor Turnpike, Bridgehampton, Website
Experience LongHouse in the evening, strolling along illuminated garden paths adorned with captivating sculptures, providing a unique perspective of the gardens on Dec. 9, 10, 16 and 17. Appreciate the wintertime charm of the trees and plants. Indulge in the cozy ambiance of the pavilion, where you can enjoy festive music, delectable food, and refreshing drinks. 133 Hands Creek Road, East Hampton
The festivities kick off as twilight sets in, featuring complimentary hot chocolate from Hamptons Coffee and live, interactive holiday tunes performed by Sarah Conway and the Playful Souls. All of this sets the stage for the main highlight: the grand illumination! This year, we pay tribute to the esteemed "Admiral" Ed Michaels, a legendary figure in Montauk Harbor. 2000 Montauk Highway, Montauk
