The summer is winding down but there is still time to pencil in some end of summer fun! Adults are busy getting kids ready for back-to-school, tidying up the house in preparation for fall, and coming to terms with having to say goodbye to another beautiful summer season here on Long Island. With so much going on it’s important to make time for yourself and the things you want to do before summer’s end.

There are tons of great live music performances, farmers markets, and festivals & fairs going on during this time of the year to help you say goodbye to summer in style! There are so many different ways to end the summer with a bang. If you’re a big foodie why not eat out at a new independent restaurant? If you’re a wine connoisseur make your way out to the North Fork to try a vineyard you haven’t had a chance to visit yet. If you prefer spending a nice quiet day at home to celebrate the end of the season, you can do that too!

Rock Out!: There are still many live concerts happening soon on Long Island, perfect for a fun night out, full of singing and dancing along to your favorite tunes. Local performers of all styles will be putting on shows within the next few weeks!

Bubbly Brews:  Are you a beer lover? Why not visit one of the many breweries on Long Island and try their beer sampler! You’ll be able to taste a few of their home brews before you decide which one you like best.

Fresh Food: There are still lots of farmers markets staying open through the end of the summer into fall. Make your way to one to purchase fresh produce, support small businesses, and talk to the local suppliers. You might learn something new!

Play Like A Kid: Play outside with the kids! You’ll get to spend some time being active, bond with your children, plus you’ll get a kick out of showing them things you liked to do/play when you were their age.

Wine Tour: Get together a few friends and family members for a day trip to some of the best wineries and vineyards on Long Island. Plan a wine tour so neither you or anyone else in your party has to worry about driving around from vineyard to vineyard. Just concentrate on having a great time while taste testing all of the different wines.

Looking to say your farewells to summer from the comfort of home? Do you prefer more of a relaxing end to your summer? Well, here are a few mellow suggestions on how to spend the rest of the summer the way you’d like to.
