LONG ISLAND HERITAGE TRAIL
Plan a weekend get-away, family vacation or day trip along the Long Island Heritage Trail to discover and experience the heritage of the island’s North Shore. Visit our heritage trail communities for local attractions, museums, parks, historic sites, and events. You’ll find excellent lodging and special vacation packages along the trail.
The Long Island Heritage Trail, formerly Kings Highway and known as the Washington Spy Trail, originated in the 1700s . The trail encompasses the entire Route 25A corridor which stretches along the island’s Gold Coast and is a major part of Long Island’s history including its role in Prohibition during the Roaring 20s.
TURN, the new TV series on AMC is a dramatization based on Alexander Rose’s book Washington’s Spies that tells the untold story of America’s 1st spy ring. The series explores the Culper Ring, a band of Long Island friends, considered to be the first spy ring in the nation 250 years ago. #TURN
