Young couples frequently stroll hand-in-hand down Main Street before stopping to grab a bite to eat at one of the many Zagat-rated restaurants in Huntington. These aren't strip mall eateries typical in the suburbs. They are culinary hotspots serving inventive international fare. Beyond food, there are also a number of other cultural experiences to be had here. The Main Street Petite Gallery puts on an annual arts festival in the summer, while the Inter-Media Arts Center features regular music and theater performances. The Huntington Country Club is another popular venue where members can relax with a drink after a round of golf or tennis or enjoy an elegant meal in the intimate dining room. When it's too cold to hit the links, members have access to an ice skating and hockey complex.
Close to 30,000 people call the coastal town of Huntington their home. The slightly lower price of homes in Suffolk County attracts buyers that can't afford properties in neighboring Nassau County.

The town is very walkable, and alternative-fuel and hybrid vehicles qualify for free parking-a rarity in New York-on the street and at the Long Island Rail station. The Huntington Area Rapid Transit also provides bus transportation for those who don't telecommute, as almost 10 percent of the population does. While residents primarily hold "white-collar" jobs, there is a high concentration of artists and designers that live here and find inspiration in the town.
