10 Things to Do in Bayville That You Shouldn't Miss

September 24, 2017 Phylicia Berquist

The Village of Bayville, often referred to as Pine Island, is a village located on Long Island Sound facing Greenwich, Connecticut. The Incorporated Village of Bayville is located within the town of Oyster Bay in Nassau County, New York, United States. The population was 6,669 at the 2010 census. The village was incorporated in 1919 during the incorporated village movement which allowed many larger estate owners on Long Island to establish political and security control over their domains.

Sagamore Hill National Historic Site

A bully good historic attraction, not to be missed: the home of Theodore Roosevelt from 1902 to 1906, considered the "Summer White House," a beautiful 23-room Victorian mansion estate that also includes a 37-acre National Environmental Study Area of forest, tidal salt marsh and bay beach.

Caumsett State Park

Reviewed By coderite - syosset

Great park for a 4-mile round trip walk. Great scenery and view of the LI Sound. Many bike riders. Mostly paved trails, but a lot of off-road trails available. When we went for the walk, there were no houses to tour and all were closed to the public. Only a few restrooms; bring your water and refreshments. Trails had some benches to rest.

Great location.
Nice/fun place to take the kids, however, it's a bit costly.

The kids played miniature golf. $11 each if you play / $5 Viewing only
The package deal is a bit more reasonable.

We gave our kids money for ice cream. They were smart enough to figure out that it was too expensive at the Bayville Adventure Park so they went next door to the Souvlaki Place and purchased the ice cream from there. They even had enough money to purchase ice cream for the adults.

Shu Swamp Preserve - Charles T Church Nature Preserve

Reviewed By Paul M - Germany

My wife and I went for a walk around the preserve a couple of days ago. There was fresh snow on the ground, which made it even more interesting and perfect for photography (see my photos). I especially like the fact that no loud noise, radios, pets (of any kind), hunting, trapping, fishing, camping, food or drink are allowed in the park. This is wonderful as some preserves and arboretums on Long Island allow dogs and are far too noisy (Bailey Arboretum, for example). The trails at Shu Swamp meander through the woodland and waterways making you feel very much in touch with nature. I hope that people continue to respect it.

John P. Humes Japanese Stroll Garden

Reviewed By NervousNerd - New York

We visited in the rain - and it was especially wonderful. Almost on a par with the Asticou Azalea Garden in Seal Harbor, though more authentically japanese. One of the neglected treasures of Long Island - I hope rumors it might shut through lack of funding are unfounded - though it's too nice ever to be popular.

What is not great about Glen Cove? Morgan Park is one of the highlights. Beautiful waterfront park, concerts on the weekends in the summer, small swimming area, lovely promenade along Long Island Sound, picnic and grills, small playground on the water. Just a lovely time for a relaxing day.

Bruce Museum

Explore Art and Science at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut.The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 1 pm to 5 pm; closed Mondays and major holidays. Closing at 3 pm the eve before Christmas and New Year's Day.

Reviewed By GettinOn - New York, NY

The Bruce is a modest museum over all, and it is subdivided to provide space for two or three adult art exhibitions, a natural history section, and children's attraction spaces.

Rather than being a smorgasbord of not-quite satisfying morsels, however, the site is consistently delightful with bite-sized showcases and at least one or two mind-filling courses.

Examples will vary. We've visited to view drawings of big cats, many featured on Hermes scarves; African American quilts; Paris paintings featuring the city during its period of public lighting improvements; and most recently the current exhibition of Toulouse-Lautrec works on loan from the Herakleidon Museum.

Regardless of the specific current draw, there is large single room devoted to an interesting lesser-known artist - and a number of dinosaur-related enticements for youngsters. During warm weather, the grounds offer picnic possibilities amid prehistoric beast sculptures.

In short, this is a fun place for adults, kids and families.

Sands Point Preserve

Reviewed By Ezra B - New York City, New York

The Sands Point Preserve is a very nice nature park with trails, cliffs, beaches and great views. This is a place to free your mind from the hustle of city life and embrace the beauty of mother nature. The first iconic structure upon your visit is the Castle Gould, which was made from Onondaga Limestone that contains thousands of fossils.

I saw up to eight trails, although the map says six trails. I would recommend walking or taking a rugged bike with athletic gear. The trails are well organized, clean and well posted. There are private residences to the east, and the Hempstead House to the north west, which was holding a beautiful wedding on the day and time we visited. The park allows parking, camping and places in the woods to meditate, as we saw one gentleman doing.

Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery & Aquarium

Reviewed By Alore85 - Long Island, New York

My sister and I brought my two sons to the Hatchery during Mid-Winter Recess for a snow making activity. The event space was very small and crowded. Luckily, my sons really weren't interested in the event and were more than happy to walk around the trout tanks outside and feed the fish. (Fish food is $4 for a bucket, but there are quarter machines to buy food as well.) They also enjoyed the baby turtles.

The facility itself is not very big and all of it can be done within an hour or hour and a half. They do have a pond where you can fish, however it is only open on weekends. They also advertise for many special events throughout the year. We are definitely looking forward to going back when the weather is nicer and trying out luck with more special events in the future.

Nassau County Museum of Art

Reviewed By bb_mccaw - New York City

This museum is in the mansion of a former Long Island Gold Coast estatea and across the surrounding grounds. It changes exhibits several times a year, and features significant artwork in almost any media of important artists of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. It is always worth a visit, and the caliber of the work rivals the major museums in Manhattan, albeit on a smaller scale!
