Between Long Island’s built-up commercial and industrial areas and the large acreage of wilderness and beach, the residents of Long Island are able to experience the best of both worlds. But sometimes the rigmarole of the everyday can become stressful and overwhelming. It is important to remember that mental balance can be found by spending some time reacquainting yourself with nature. The best way to take advantage of our natural surroundings is to take a weekend (or longer if your schedule allows) to go camping.
