Gold Coast Attractions

The Inn at Great Neck is located on the historic Gold Coast of Long Island. “West Egg” from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby, refers to Great Neck. What has made Great Neck such a well-regarded locale has been its picturesque scenery that is in close proximity to Manhattan.

Our convenient location offers guests a great starting point to discover the cultural, historic and natural attractions of Long Island’s North Shore, as well as our dining and nightlife.

From the magnificent gardens of Old Westbury, to a historic walking tour of our Great Neck village, there is plenty to do and see nearby.

Be sure to visit the local museums, arboretums, mansions, gardens, beaches, hiking trails, shopping villages, state parks, theaters, restaurants, golf courses, bike paths, fishing piers, farmer’s markets and more.
