Local Lifestyle

Rye’s lifestyle is casual yet vibrant, capturing a sense of easy excitement but without the bustle that characterizes its nearby metropolitan alternatives. As a result, Rye has become an extremely well-rounded luxury community, equally accommodating the wants and desires of ambitious jet-setting professionals, successful retirees, and families. From its highly walkable city center, you'll be a stone's throw away from a variety of popular dining options and shopping, a beautiful coastline, and a wide range of recreation options. For upscale East Coast living at a comfortable pace, Rye hits the luxury sweet spot.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Rye's proximity to the Big Apple has enabled it to develop its own share of incredibly satisfying restaurants and shopping experiences, and its comfortable distance from the hustle and bustle enables even greater enjoyment.
Many start a night on the town at Ruby's, a staple of Rye's downtown social scene. The invitingly spacious bar and bistro is a popular brunch and seafood pub, complete with all the top-shelf designer drinks you could ask for. You'll find further upscale pub experiences at the three-story Rye Grill and Bar, serving up the most mouthwatering comfort food imaginable in a swanky estate-style setting. For inspired Mediterranean fare made to perfection at Meso, a simple and comfortable setting with a clean and modern interior design.
If the classiest night to remember is in order, treat yourself to Rafele's outstanding Neapolitan Italian cuisine — even those from New York City and New Jersey make the trip here, thanks to its painstakingly sourced high-quality ingredients. Along the same lines, La Fenice Gelateria creates some of the most authentic Italian delicacies, serving up deluxe coffee drinks and gelato alongside fresh-baked paninis and a range of world-class sweets you won't find anywhere else. If it's sweetness you crave in particular, you'll find much to love at Longford's Ice Cream, a local chain specializing in unique, small-batch flavors.
Shoppers also have an array of fine options available to them. LoveBella provides an exceptional assortment of designer women's clothing, along with highly attentive staff who take an active role in helping you find the perfect fit and style. Rye also provides a fantastic range of boutique jewelry options you might normally expect from NYC proper — between Woodrow Jewelers and CHAKARR, you're sure to find the perfect gift for that special someone in your life.

Things to Do

Rye's local parks and outdoor recreation areas are thoughtfully maintained. You'll find all the beachside fun you could ask for at Rye Town Park and Oakland Beach, known for their calm inlet waters.

The Rye YMCA features a fantastic range of indoor and outdoor recreation options, complete with extensive community events and classes fit for everyone. Each spring, they host the Rye Derby and Healthy Kids Day, a family-friendly run/walk that never fails to bring the community together for memories that will endure a lifetime.
Golf lovers particularly appreciate the meticulously maintained and strikingly beautiful course at Rye Golf Club, located off of scenic Milton Harbor.
