It seems to me like every summer I'm googling things to do on Long Island or texting my friends if there is anything fun to do.
Through the years, I've been trying to compile a list of things to do so I am never bored. If you're like me and want to be constantly doing something, you've come to the right place because I've made a list to cure your boredom.
1. Photo Shoot with friends
Something my friends and I love to do is grab our cameras and head somewhere cute to take pictures. Recently, my friend and I went to the Old Westbury Gardens($10 with a student ID) and walked around and just snapped pictures throughout. This is a great way to have fun, hangout, and get great pictures for your Instagram.
2. City day
We live so close to the greatest city in the world so take advantage of that. Hop on the LIRR and before you know it, you're on seventh avenue and ready to take on whatever the day has to offer.
This should be a no-brainer. We live on an island. Drive 30 minutes in any direction and you'll find sand and water.
4. Pool party
For those of you who may not like sand or cold water or the beach in general, one of your friends is bound to have a pool if you don't. There's nothing wrong with spending the day lounging around on a pool float and just catching up with old friends. Bonus points if the pool has a hot tub!
5. Splish Splash
Tis the season for water parks! This one is super-convenient to Long Islanders because it's just a drive down the LIE to Riverhead. With so many rides and attractions to choose from, you could go a million times and never get bored. Be prepared for lines though, they can get pretty long.
I's not the best amusement park and definitely meant for younger children. However, it's always fun to go and relive some childhood memories.
7. Jones Beach Concert
I've actually never been to a Jones Beach Concert but I've heard it's incredible. With the bay in the background, I wouldn't expect any less.
This is hands-down one of my favorite things. There's so many things boardwalks offer like food, mini golf, cute instagram photos and more! My favorite is Jones Beach but pick your poison among all Long Island has to offer.
So get your cameras out, pull your swimsuits out from the backs of your closest where they were hidden from snow, find some friends, and hop in the car. Go make memories to last a lifetime! See you at the beach!
