World famous novelty architecture keeps life fun. The Big Duck located in Flanders, New York is our local favorite and it is on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1931, this duck was first used to advertise and sell eggs. There's a big...More

A Long Island landmark for decades. Everyone sees it but not everyone stops. Take the tour. All you need is to walk in the door. Learn about the Ducks history and architecture. Pick up a souvenir.

So much fun & history in a tinny spot. In another life time actually a place to buy duck eggs, this kitschy spot is a landmark worth stopping at if even for a few minutes. Today it's a gift shop filled with local color. It's...More

Don't expect anything extravagant - it's only the big duck. But, it's something funny to visit and take a few pictures. Inside is a small 'museum' - you can see photos of similar attractions, you can learn a bit about a history of this place....More
