Summer is approaching and we have put together a few places for you and or your family to go and visit nearby.
Montauk Lighthouse, Montauk State Park –Authorized by President George Washinton in 1792, this is the oldest lighthouse in New York State. As a National Historic Landmark, it is understandably one of the most popular destinations (and picture spots) on Long Island. Paired with the expansive scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean, it’s hard to beat. When visiting, you are able to climb to the top, walk the park or visit the museum, which is located in the 1860 keepers’ house.
Adventureland-A place for the family, Adventureland has been Long Island's amusement park since 1962. The park offers rides, attractions, games, and more. Located 30 minutes east of New York City, at 2245 Broad Hollow Rd. in Farmingdale, New York Adventureland has something for everyone.
