Looking to spend the day on Long Island, New York? While some may be familiar with our out-east neighbor from hitting up the parties on Fire Island or by venturing out to the Surf Lodge at Montauk, the rest of it also offers plenty of great things to do in the summer as well. Some of the best beaches near NYC are just a short LIRR ride away, as are world-renouned wineries and breweries. After all, have you seen what these people do to an iced tea? If that doesn’t spell out a good time I don’t know what does.
