It’s summer time! But it’s… raining? Don’t fret; there are plenty of places to go and plenty of things to do on a rainy day on Long Island. From movie theaters to malls, even aquariums, the rainy day choices might even sound as appealing as the choices you have on a warm cloudless day. If you are in the mood to sit back and relax in this stormy weather, going to see the latest movie released is probably a perfect option for you. With an endless amount of theaters spread across the island, the only difficulty is choosing which one you see your movie at! Show times are posted online and often there are deals on popcorn, soda and candy combinations. If you are choosing to see a 3D movie, make sure the movie theater you plan on going to is showing the correct format. Depending on times, certain theaters show either the 3D or regular format of a movie. Multiplex’s often show both. Check your local listings. Throughout Nassau and Suffolk County, there is an abundance of shopping malls. In Nassau County the malls are Roosevelt Field, Broadway Mall, Westfield Sunrise, The Source Mall, Green Acres and Americana Manhasset. In Suffolk County the malls are Walt Whitman Mall, Westfield South Shore Mall, Smith Haven Mall, The Outlets at Bellport, The Outlets at Deer Park and the Tanger Outlets. Shopping is a perfect activity to pass the time, especially if you are stuck in a storm. What makes these shopping malls even more appealing is that they often are also home to a few casual restaurants and movie theaters. They can become a one-stop for a whole day’s activities. As the saying goes, “shop till you drop!” A hidden place of interest for marine and water loving Long Islanders is Atlantis Marine World in Riverhead. This aquarium is a perfect place to visit when the weather isn’t great. All the incredible marine life inside will make you forget all about the storm outside. With multiple exciting exhibits and more, Atlantis Marine World guarantees a good time. The interactive and exciting experience that Atlantis offers will be a lasting one. The best part is that since it’s located on Long Island, travel time isn’t a huge issue. Or, you could always do what we know you want to do… go outside and sing in the rain!
