The first day of spring has arrived and life continues on a path toward some pre-pandemic normalcy, so we have searched Long Island for some amazing ideas to keep you all entertained and engaged during Spring Break. There are so many spring break activities for Long Islander to enjoy; such as a beach outing, visits to our local parks or a trip to a local zoo. We have created a wonderful fun filled list to keep everyone active during the spring. Here is a fabulous guide filled with a few of our most exciting and favorite Spring-cation activities on Long Island.
1. Suffolk County is known for our stunning and sprawling beaches stretching
along both shores. Go on a beach walk, hunt for seashells, fish or wade in
calmer waters. There’s nothing more relaxing than a day at the shore.
2. Suffolk County also has 4 diverse public golf courses, which open beginning
in March. Make a reservation for a tee time with friends or family and enjoy a
lovely day out on the course.
3. Our county has a combination of full service Marinas, Boat Ramps and Boat
Launches. They rent rowboats and have vendors who rent Canoes and
Kayaks. Did you know you can rent a boat slip at the Shinnecock Marina
Online with a Green Key? Would you be interested in paddling down the
Nissequogue River? Residents can rent a canoe or kayak at Nissequogue
River Kayak Rentals. What a magnificent way to spend a sunny spring
4. The Sands Point Preserve’s grounds are open to the public for hiking and
nature walks. There are more than 200 acres with six marked trails to
explore. Bring a picnic lunch, play catch, and monkey around
at the Woodland Playground. Be sure to check out their calendar on the link
below for scheduled activities for the month, such as Outdoor Adventures
with Ranger Eric.
5. Do you love animals? Visit one of the local animal farms,
just minutes away from Alston. The Long Island Game Farm in Manorville has
not only a petting zoo, but exotic animals like Giraffes. Visit the Game Farm to
get up close and personal with many species of animals. Pet a baby goat or
feed a giraffe. It’s an enjoyable experience for everyone of all ages. They will
reopen to the public on April 17, 2021.
6. Atlantis Marine World is a short ride from Alston and is an aquarium filled
with many activities for all ages to enjoy. Swim with the sharks, kiss a sea
lion, and visit the penguins. They even have spring and summer camps for kids.
These are all activities available for you to enjoy just minutes away
from Alston. There is nothing like a fun day at the aquarium for the whole
family to enjoy. https://www.longislandaquarium.com
