Dear Long Islander,

 

August begins with much excitement - the Olympics are well underway in England, with the US taking home plenty of the gold, silver, and bronze. Whether or not you're an athlete, the Olympics are something that everyone can get excited about - there are numerous celebrations to partake in celebrating the US victories, and for those of us who do enjoy partaking in sports, it provides the motivation to get out there, and get active. The weekend's forecast is mixed, but not to worry - there are plenty indoor & outdoor events and activities this weekend to entertain, no matter what the weekend brings. The upcoming weekend and week are filled with musicals, charity events, farmers markets, and even a sandcastle building contest. So get ready to go for the gold this weekend, and get out there!

Hot Off the Presses
Walk Around Towns on Long Island
Enjoy LI's Historic Main Streets for a Day of Nostalgia & Entertainment!
The rich and diverse history lives on with a modern day twist in many Long Island towns, making a day trip to walk around well worth it!  You might even start whistling the theme song to "The Andy Griffith Show" as you mosey down some of Long Island's historic, fun-filled Main Streets.  There are scenic sitting areas with town clocks, some of the old movie houses are now community theatres, and for many Main Street buildings, the storefronts have been fully restored to their glory days.  Towns on the water have their own unique feel -  to be able to walk along a dock, eat at a restaurant looking at the picturesque views the Long Island Sound or the Atlantic Ocean is another great way to spend a day or evening. Put on your most comfortable walking shoes and plan a visit to some of our favorite walk around towns.
