Booming town with plenty of diversity, coffee shops, and a great party scene! Lived here all my life and there is always something to do in town or within the nearby area.

Patchogue is definitely improving! Theres so many options of places to eat! It's right on the water in most spots which is enjoyable. Pricing for renting and buying is on the expensive side. Theres plenty of fun things to do, and places to shop also.
Patchogue is a beautiful town, especially in the summer. There are plenty of things around to do, especially in the Village of Patchogue. The local library also offers many free programs, activities, events, and opportunities for children, teens, and adults of all ages.
