The hamlet, part of the Town of Huntington, draws its name from its situation between the larger communities of Huntington and Northport, where residents often go for shopping, dining and cultural pursuits.  Though Centerport does not have a downtown proper, it does have a strip of stores that offers a gym,bakery, Italian and Chinese restaurants and popular bar. 

Many Centerport properties have beach access or dock and mooring privileges. Most residents of The Presidents' section (whose streets are named for presidents) are eligible to join the Huntington Beach Community Association with its clubhouse,  dock, sandy beach, camp for kids,  lobster fests and other social activities.

The 43-acre Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum on Little Neck Road (the estate was built by William Vanderbilt III and is still intact) has a marine museum, a boathouse and other structures on its grounds, which draw a generous amount of visitors year round.  
Swimming, boating, paddling, waterskiing and fishing are popular past times in this area; the Mill Dam Bridge is a favorite fishing spot. Centerport Beach, open to all Town of Huntington residents, includes a section reserved for seniors.

Restaurants include the historic Mill Pond House, on 25A, the more casual Nicky' of Centerport, and the very casual Shack, at Stony Hollow Road and 25A, which has outdoor picnic tables and is open seasonally, starting in May.

Manhattan via the Long Island Expressway or the Northern State Parkway is approximately 40 miles away. The Long Island Rail Road can be easily accessed at the Greenlawn or Huntington stations, both short drives from Centerport.
