How Will You Spend Your Next Free Day Around Long Island?
Tour a Vineyard: Long Island offers some of the East Coast’s best wineries, so why not take a tour to get a look behind the scenes and enjoy a few local tastings? Wine enthusiasts visit from all over the world, and you’ll find plenty of special events exclusive to Long Island going on throughout the year.
Take a Nature Cruise: Take in the bays and inlets of Suffolk County on a nature cruise. You’ll explore the area’s rich ecological history as a tour guide talks you through everything from the post-glacial period to the black ducks, hawks, and osprey seen flying through the air to this day. You might even catch sight of a whale.
Hire a Kayak: If you want to get out on the water under your own steam rather than taking a tour, there’s no better option than hiring a kayak. It’s the best way we can think of to explore the area’s stunning scenic coastline, and you’ll get your daily exercise sorted as you go.
Visit Wildwood State Park: Covering 600 acres of undeveloped hardwood forest on a high bluff that overlooks Long Island Sound, Wildwood State Park is great for anything from hiking during the summer to cross-country skiing during the winter.
Check Out Long Island Aquarium: Opened in 2000, the Long Island Aquarium’s prize attraction is a 20,000-gallon coral reef display tank, one of the largest in the Western Hemisphere. You can also get up close and personal with electric eels, giant Pacific octopuses, and jellyfish.
