Summer is coming to a close, which is a sad thing to accept. No one wants the long sunny days to ever end. The warm temperatures are going to slowly turn into cool breezes. It’s going to get darker outside sooner and before we all know it, the big holidays will all be here.
It’s not too late to grasp at the last remaining days of summertime fun! Don’t wait, use this list and check each of them off before summer of 2018 is gone forever!
Find a Local Swimming Spot
It may not be blistering hot outside as much as it was a few weeks ago, but going for a swim is still possible! Find a local pool, river, creek, and go for a swim. Stretch out in the water and wade through an afternoon with friends and family.
Take a Small Road Trip
There are places within a day’s drive of Long Island that you can make if you want. Mystic Seaport is only a couple hours away. A museum filled with extraordinary pieces of nautical artifacts, along with fine art, film, and video. Philadelphia is about an hour and 45-minute drive also. Visit local shops and get yourself a Philly cheesesteak. Take to the road and explore nearby treasures before the snow hits!
Go to a State Park
State parks surround the state of New York. With your road trip, perhaps visit a state park. Find a place to bike, hike, picnic, grab a camera and take photos, go swimming in a natural spring, if you’re into it go caving, geocaching, rock climbing, or stargazing.
Hit The Beach
If you can, brave the waters. It isn’t as hot as it once was outside, but the ocean awaits! Don’t forget the sunscreen, maybe go out and sunbathe for the day.
Camping can be done in all seasons, but nothing beats a summer night camping experience. Sitting in the moonlight by a firepit is one of the best experiences ever. Feeling connected with nature is one of the most calming experiences to have. Decrease your stress and go camping for a few days.
Visit School Locations
Have any highschoolers? It’s time to go scouting for school locations! Take a trip to potential schools and go on some tours. Take a look around the campus or get a tour.
