Grab a Thrifty Rental Car from McArthur Airport and go Long on Fun!

Whether you want to relax on the beach, entertain your taste buds, live like Gatsby or shop like a local, there’s a long list of things to do in Long Island. So after you land at Long Island McArthur Airport, jump into your Thrifty car rental and start exploring!

East Hampton’s Main Beach

Two things are famous in East Hampton: The celebrities who spend their summers on the shore, and Main Beach, itself, ranked one of the country’s Top 10 Beaches by noted coastal expert, “Dr. Beach.” Just a short drive from the Long Island McArthur Airport is this quaint coastal village – boasting large seaside estates and historic character. To take it all in, park your Long Island rental car and stroll the streets and sink your toes into the sand.

Gatsby’s Gold Coast

Take a trip back in time with an historic drive along the Route 25A corridor, also known as the Long Island Heritage Trail. Marvel at the mansions that inspired Fitzgerald, and tour these formal estates. Get a glimpse at what life was like during prohibition as you drive your Thrifty rental car along the Washington Spy Trail. Many self-drive itineraries are available.

Sagamore Hill

Get behind the wheel of your rental car and discover the pearl of Oyster Bay, Sagamore Hill — the historic home of Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States. The home is now a National Historic Site, open as a museum to visitors. His “Summer White House,” as he called it, also has a nearby nature preserve and Young’s Cemetery, his final resting spot.

Montauk Lighthouse

One of Long Island’s most famous lighthouses is also the oldest lighthouse in New York state. Commissioned by George Washington in 1797, Montauk Lighthouse was built for $22,300 on the Easternmost tip of Long Island. Today, almost $1 million has been spent to save the lighthouse. Take your Thrifty rental car to this historic site and park to enjoy a tour and climb the tower.

Pollock-Krasner House

Fans of 20th century American art and abstract expressionist painters Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner won’t want to miss this National Historic Landmark. Drive to Springs, East Hampton, to visit their home and studio. See prints by both artists, plus jazz records, furniture and works in their personal library. Enthusiasts can even stand in Pollock’s studio and admire his paint-splattered walls and floor, imagining themselves as part of the creative process.

Walt Whitman Birthplace & Interpretive Center

Drive your Thrifty rental car back in time, specifically 1819, to the birthplace of America’s most famous poet, Walt Whitman. With furnishings and architecture indicative of the 19th century, you can find more than 130 portraits of Whitman, along with original letters, manuscripts, his voice on tape, artifacts and his schoolmaster’s desk.
