We may take living on Long Island for granted at times. After all we have beaches located on the North and South shore and are an hour commute from New York City. Though the beaches and the East End are some great things about Long Island there are plenty of great events that take place during the Summer which are fun for all. Whether you’re a sports fan, a music lover or enjoy activities at the beach there’s something for everyone to take part in.
1. Memorial Day Weekend Air Show – Jones Beach State Park – May 27th
