Long Island AttorneyIf you want to take a spur-of-the-moment trip or just “get away from it all” for a few days, you don’t have to leave the island to do it. Here are our top ten can’t-miss places on Long Island to visit this summer.

The Beach

Both residents and visitors on Long Island know: the island sports some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. Whether you hit popular Jones Beach or decide to scout out a quieter location, don’t let summer slip by without the chance to build sand castles, splash in the waves, or soak up some sun while you enjoy a good book. Don’t forget the sunscreen!


This summer, Adventureland launches Turbulence, the first and only spinning roller coaster on Long Island. Whether you’re an Adventureland regular or you’re new to the park, don’t miss the fun!

An Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Tour

Okay, so this isn’t one location on Long Island. Instead, it’s a tour of the island’s many old-fashioned ice cream parlors. Even if you already have a favorite, try breaking out of your summer routine. From Krisch’s Restaurant and Ice Cream Parlor in Massapequa to Itgen’s in Valley Stream, tasty summer treats are just a few steps away.

Summer Movie Express

Long Island’s Summer Movie Express offers great family films for just $1.00, with a portion of the proceedings going to support the Will Rogers Institute. Visit www.regmovies.com or tweet #SummerMovieExpress to find participating theatres.

Long Island Aquarium

Stay close to the water while you beat the heat in the aquarium’s climate-controlled galleries. Dozens of marine species, including penguins, await your visit!

Cousins Paintball

If you’re the competitive type, Cousins Paintball of Calverton offers 11 different paintball courses and the opportunity for an afternoon of nonstop action with friends and family. Stay alert!

Farmers’ Markets

Long Island is home to several local farmers’ markets, where you can browse fresh local produce, get to know the people who raised it, and discover new tastes and ingredients. A great way to start a cookout, camping trip, or a fun weekend at home.

Go Camping

Go on a camping adventure without ever leaving the island. Long Island is home to a wide range of campsites, from RV-friendly spaces with power and sewer hookups to more remote tent-camping areas. However you like to “rough it,” there’s a campsite for you.

Vineyard Tours

If you’re looking for a relaxing way to enjoy time with friends or a loved one – and to learn some more about wines while you do it – head to Long Island’s East End for a tour of one or more of Long Island’s local vineyards. They’re also a great way to enjoy warm autumn weather!

Jones Beach Band Shell

Why the band shell? Tuesday is usually Kids Night, and summer concerts are available at the band shell and at other locations, including Long Beach and Eisenhower Park, all summer. Whether you’re looking for fun with the kids or a romantic evening, outdoor concerts are the way to go.
