One of the nice things to do on Long Island is to visit the Gold Coast Mansions and see the grand historic homes of many notable Long Islanders from the 'Gold Coast' era. The homes are along the north shore and were once owned by those like William Vanderbilt. Today you can visit many of these mansions, including Oheka Castle and Coindre Hall, for example. Many are used for large events like weddings.
With over 100 miles on Long Island, there are a plenty of beaches to enjoy. I live in Western Suffolk, however at least once every summer I visit Long Beach in Nassau County. This year I went during the Long Beach arts and Crafts Show. Other beaches in Nassau County, along the South Shore, include Gilgo Beach and Robert Moses. North Shore beaches are great for families looking for a more quiet time. The waves are calm and the setting is serene.
Long Islanders always have a lot of fun festivals and holiday events to go to. Many are held every year, like the Long Island Fall Festival, the Dickens Festival, and the Oyster Bay Festival. In every Autumn, you can go to one of a dozen farms for pumpking picking, like White Post Farms in Huntington.
Are you looking for a bit of history and culture on Long Island? You can visit some of our famous lighthouses and windmills. We have the Montauk Lighthouse, which has many events throughout the year. Or explore at one of our numerous museums. For example, the Fireman's museum is a tribute to Firefighters and teaches fire safety and the Cradle of Aviation displays exhibits representing our involvement in the Aviation industry. Both are in Garden City, NY.
There are two great attractions for summertime fun - Adventureland Amusement Park and Splish Splash Water Park. They can get crowded in the summer, but well worth it.
We have the wineries on the east end, which makes for a fun day out with friends. The wineries are hugely popular and thousands of people visit every year. Many wineries have special events, including live music.
