Wantagh is nicknamed the "Gateway to Jones Beach" It's actually the last exit off the Wantagh Parkway before crossing over to beach side. Its a wonderful community with 5 Star schools, an awesome town pool, a gorgeous community park, and a marinia. The residence have a pride of ownership, and a real sence of community. The location is great for commuters as there is a centrally located LIRR train station, and is bookended by the Wantagh Parkway and the Seaford Oyster Bay (AKA135) making travel into and out of Wantagh a breeze. There are also several well know restaurants, and boutiques. Lastly there is the LIRR train musuem where not only can you tour the train on a Summer afternoon, but several other town events are held on the park like grounds. Wantagh is a great place to visit, and an even better place to live!!
