Somewhere on the North Fork this weekend, a family will pull up to a beach on its return to the North Fork.

Along the way, they’ll pass rows of budding vines, a line developing outside Magic Fountain, and the smoke and reverberating laughter from a backyard country barbecue. On the way back home, perhaps they’ll stop at a farm stand for a bundle of fresh asparagus and some strawberries.

But for now, their sights are set on that one specific destination: the water.

After all, it is the unofficial start of summer and we all can’t wait to dip our toes in it.

Whether you call the North Fork home all year long, are just spending a weekend here next month or are planning many return visits in the coming season, let our guide to summer 2019 help you get back into the flow of summer.

In our usual eat, drink, live and breathe style, the northforker team has spent the offseason keeping up to date with what’s new in food, wine and fun. Below we’ve compiled dates for the North Fork’s most popular returning events and visited some of the new places to stay on the North Fork.

Pick up a copy of our Vacation Guide on newsstands this week for even more fun ideas on how to spend summer here this year, including our complete dining guide.
