Can you believe it is August already? Summer is halfway over and then school starts, again.
What is on your Summer Bucket List? Have you checked off a bunch?
When you think Summer there are some things that just come to mind. I know we always love making smores, having a family picnic at one of our local parks, building sandcastles at one of our local beaches, catching lightning bugs and so much more. We try and fill our summer with lots of family fun and memories that will last a lifetime. And, I always take lots of pictures so we can really remember those memories and enjoy looking back on all the fun we had.
Living on Long Island we always enjoy doing things that only Long Islanders can do. Here are some of our suggestions for some family summer fun that maybe you will add to your summer bucket list, too:
1. Ride on the Nunley’s Carousel
“Nunley’s Carousel is located in its own building adjacent to the Cradle of Aviation Museum on Museum Row.
Admission is $2.00 per rider and everyone on the carousel is required to have a ticket! 41 horses and a lion await you on this legendary, over 100 year old, beautifully restored carousel.”
2. Pedal Boat at Belmont Lake State Park
Enjoy relaxing on the lake with your family on a pedal boat, kayak or row boat.
Located at: Southern State Parkway Exit 38 North Babylon, NY 11703
3. See a Long Island Ducks Game–
baseball and summer go hand in hand. We know you will love to meet the Ducks mascot QuackerJack and use a Quacker at the game.

4. Port Jeff Big Chair-
Looking for some inexpensive fun with a beautiful view ?
And a fun photo opportunity? Head down to Port Jefferson Harbor and sit on the #PJBigChair!
5. Nassau County Firefighters Museum & Education Center
Informative and Fun! Very interactive and wonderful for kids of all ages.
6. The Big Duck- Flanders
If you are from Long Island you have to visit The Big Duck and get a family photo. It is a historical piece of architecture that will make you smile. If you visit when the museum and souvenir shop is open you will be able to take home something with a duck on it and your kids will want a duck souvenir, too. So many ducks in one small area and it is awesome.
(don’t make a trip just for the Big Duck it is not where you will spend most of your day. It is within 15 minutes of Splish Splash or the Long Island Aquarium)
