Greenporter Hotel

 Its a lovely boutique hotel with friendly staff, moderate prices and clean rooms. The most important factor for visitors is the location: on the Front Street, in the middle of all the action in Greenport.

Aldo’s Coffee

This is THE BEST coffee and biscotti I have ever tried in my life!!!I’m not exaggerating.
You should definitely get Aldo’s experience in Greenport.

     
Lavender Bay

It’s a beautiful lavender farm and the month of july is perfect time to stop by. 

 There is a famous Chinese movie “Lavender”. 

It’s a sad love story about a girl who had heart disease and couldn’t do activities that other children do. Her only friend is a boy named Qing Chuan. Qing had to move to America unwillingly. Before leaving he gave her a piece of lavender as a token he will never forget her and promised her that they will meet up again in 10 years. 

Apparently that is the reason why it’s so many Asian visitors at the Lavender Bay.
