I am looking for a home in a good neighborhood on Long Island that is walking distance to a nice charming village (with nice shops, restaurants, enjoyable to stroll through) and also within reasonable distance to nice parks. I have two children both under two. Searching for a nice combo of both (great village area and great park/parks). Anyone know of anything close to these perks? Home prices is not an issue and neither is distance from NYC in this inquiry just want to know everyone's opinion and what places are the best and come close to my search.

Cold Spring Harbor, Stony Brook and Northport come to mind when you say "charming village"

I've lived in Cold Spring Harbor about 25 years (I do home renovations and restorations)
and while its true that it IS a charming lil' town I call it a one shot tourist town cause one you've walked through it a few times you've seen all there is to see and there's not a whole lot going on.....yet just about two miles up the road is the town of Huntington where there's always tons of things going on from great places to hear anything from bar bands to really well known bands at IMAC on NY Ave. And then there Hecksher Park and the Hecksher Museum and more really great restaurants then you can imagine. The towns recently had a bit of a face lift so its looking purty spiffy. I doubt there's much lacking in Huntington and iffin' you wanted to take a 2 mile walk you could walk into Cold Spring Harbor...you could even visit me...I'm only a buncha houses up off Main St. once you hit town (CSH) Just look for the circa:1680 house with the tipi on the hill ya can't miss it
I'd be happy to give you the tour.

Default West Islip, NY from a former NY'er (Long Island)

Check out West Islip, NY, it is a great town, there is near by shopping and parks. You can drive to the water. I moved from Long Island a year ago to beat the taxes, but if I had stayed, West Islip was my choice.
