Go bowling!


Sayville Bowlero makes bowling cool.

Great for a night out with friends, a date, or some family fun.


Take a step back in time.


The Islip Grange takes you back in time to see what life was like in the 19th Century. Owned by the Town of Islip, this park contained historic buildings brought to the site like a carriage shed, cottages, a church, barn, a mill and more. The Islip Grange is also host to annual events like an apple festival and Civil War reenactments. 




Walk along the village streets and you will find plenty of unique and interesting shops for every taste. Try the Sayville General Store, for handcrafted gifts home keeping products, hand-poured candles, stationery and artisan crafted jewelry and more. Or if you’re in the spiritual mindset, try Gurus.This store has the goal of bringing Indian culture to Long Island including apparel, crystal and silver jewelry, and handicrafts collectibles. Or get inspired home gifts from A Cottage in the City.




No lack of eateries here. Try La Tavola Trattoria for its country Itlaian fare. Soon to be renovated Cafe Joelle for an intimate and casual dining experience. Or for the super casual, try American Cheese and have them pair your cheese and meat platters with wine or beer.
