Celeb Vacays

Just like us, our county’s celebs like to get outta town come summer. So where do they head to kick back and relax?

“We love Montauk, Long Island because of the sailing. It has a sweetness and a rustic quality. Plus, you’re close to the action and glamour of the Hamptons, but it’s more laid-back. And you don’t feel as if you have to get all dressed up.”
Andrea McArdle, singer and actress, New Rochelle  

“Long Beach Island, New Jersey. Gianna and I summered there as children growing up, and our kids fell in love with it, too. The surfing’s great, the cycling is good, and it has a very old-fashioned feeling, kind of like the last American frontier.”
Chazz Palminteri, actor and filmmaker, Bedford


“My favorite summer getaway is Westchester. Second favorite summer getaway is Paris. We never get tired of the best food in the world, probably the finest art in the world, and the prettiest city ever built. Why would anyone tire of that?”
Scarborough resident and novelist James Patterson

“I love to go to Europe in the summer with my husband and son. We visit friends in France, and then go off somewhere we’ve never been. It’s always an adventure. Our favorite experience? Going to the Palio horse race in Siena, Italy.”
Singer/actress Liz Callaway, Croton-on-Hudson

“Southern Vermont. It’s so lush and green and they have incredible summer theatre, great lecture series, exciting polo, and world-class restaurants. Situated between two mountain ranges, the Green and Taconic, our home there is a nurturing retreat.”
Chris Madden, Southern Westchester
