Hot Off the Presses
Great Long Island Attractions Opening & Closing for the 2013 Season
Be Sure to Visit Your Favorite Hot Spots Before the End of the Season!
As the summer comes to an end, many attractions on Long Island will be closing up for the season - but not to worry, we can help you make sure you visit all of your favorite hot spots just one last time before the season ends! Many attraction are outdoors and the facilities are unusable in the colder weather, which is right around the corner. So, in the next few weeks, be sure to take the opportunity to stop by these locations on the Island, and make the most out of the fading warm weather that we've been enjoying all September long. These are some of our favorites, and they'll surely be missed until they reopen in the Spring.
