Family Fun and Safe Activities to Enjoy on Long Island

Team Blog Post

Summer isn’t over yet, and though this year hasn’t been like summers of Long Island’s past, that doesn’t mean you can’t get out and enjoy all the beautiful sights this island has to offer; you’ll just have to keep a few extra safety measures in mind. 

So if you are looking for a way to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air through your masks, here are some family-friendly activities to consider:

Attend a Drive-in Theater

For just a simple car fee or donation, the fun retro tradition of drive-ins are back! Many local organizations and locations are offering family movie nights right in the comfort of your car. From Commack to Lake Grove, there are a variety of places to choose from, with many showcasing some family-friendly classics, too. See a full list of movie lot drive-ins pricing and times here.

 Just be sure that you plan and get there early for a prime spot.

Plan a Beach Day

Many local beaches are limiting the number of people they let in, so be sure that you plan an early visit. Pack a beach breakfast, pack up the car and hit your favorite local beach, or take a trip to a new one. You can even plan a ferry ride over to Fire Island and make a day of it. Just note that ferry times and space are limited, and masks must be worn.

Take A Drive Out East

From local farm stands to the miles of land, the east end can offer a scenic and peaceful drive. Before you hit the road, plan a few stops along the way. One local spot gaining a lot of attraction is Lavender By the Bay. These breathtaking lavender fields are a relaxing and gorgeous way to spend a day. They recommend purchasing your tickets online ahead of time to ensure entry. While you’re in the area take a stop at Rottkamp’s Fox Hollow Farms new sunflower maze. It’s a perfect spot to take a stroll and capture some candid pics of the kids.
