A lot of them also have scenic views of the ocean. For a great stay, reserve a room at the Fordham House or the Hedges Inn. Both of them are great for a romantic getaway.
If there is one thing Long Island has plenty of, it’s gorgeous parks. The Planting Fields Arboretum is the best park to go to during the spring. Their grounds are expansive and beautiful. In addition to incredible outdoor gardens, they also have a few giant greenhouses that are fun to explore. Avalon Park is another great place to go in the spring. It’s best for hiking.
The spring is a time for celebration in Long Island. From beer festivals to Sayville’s Springfest, there are many events that happen in the area that are worth checking out. The Sayville Springfest happens at the end of April. It’s a free event and always a great family event. Expect to eat a lot of great fair food and see the cherry blossoms at their peak.
