Walt Whitman Birthplace

In 1819, Walt Whitman was born at a farmhouse in West Hills built by his father circa 1810. The Birthplace was restored in 2001 and it is a fine example of native Long Island craftsmanship.

Another local gem just stashed behind Rte 110 that you'd pass daily, as I did for 1.5 years when I went to college down the road 25 yrs ago.......Again, nice to see very young docents working there. The one that gave my tour wants to be a curator at a grand museum one day, I wish him luck as he seemed passionate about this little historical home.

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.

Here are some STRONG SUGGESTIONS or HELPFUL HINTS upfront:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. This place deals in CASH ONLY...so bring lots of cash ($200 or more is safe as tickets for 2 Adults + 2 kids with bonus rides will total $100). Food and other activity costs will run you more depending on how long you spend at White Post.

2. Pay the extra $10 per kid for the Train Ride & Pony Ride tokens -- WHEN YOU BUY YOUR TICKETS.

3. Bring the kids some BATHING SUITS or clothes they can wet in and change in to DRY clothes...otherwise the Disney themed waterslides are OUT...

***We did not know about the water slides when we got there and our kids really wanted to do it.***

4. Everyone should wear COMFORTABLE CLOTHING to deal with outdoor activities and animal related interactions.

5. To get your money's worth for you & your family, expect to spend at least 3 hours...or more.

6. Do the enclosed BIRD FEEDING area. It is worth -- Paying $3 per feeding stick or $5 for 2 feeding sticks...so, the birds will come to you and your kids to eat the seeds.


NOW, my review. White Post Farms was a REAL FUN TIME for my children. THEY LOVED IT! They could not get enough of this place...they wore us out and later themselves.

It was worth seeing them happy and full of smiles while they had fun at White Post Farms.

We would definitely return to this place -- AGAIN!!!!

Yoga Oasis

If you love hot yoga this is a great place. This is one of the better places I've been to, instructors are encouraging and very nice. If it's your first time going to hot yoga remember to dress in layers as it gets really hot.

The Adventure Park at Long Island

Located in Wheatley Heights, NY on five spectacular wooded acres of the Henry Kaufman Campgrounds, The Adventure Park at Long Island is the area's most exciting new attraction. The Adventure Park appeals to outdoor fun-seekers age 7 through adult and features multiple zip lines and aerial ropes challenge courses.

Reviewed By Denise A - Port Washington, New York

Everything was fantastic. Only suggestion is they need a few more staff to help with the warm up and some of the easier courses as we were held up quite a bit by some kids the weren't proficient on the equipment.

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.

Reviewed By Sandy317 - Massapequa Park, New York

This place is a treasure. We went to the 1863 Thanksgiving Celebration; almost all of the buildings were open and in several they were cooking dinner as in the old days. The houses were nice and warm from the cooking fires and the smells were wonderful. We will return for the Candlelight Evenings in December.

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.

American Airpower Museum

The American Airpower Museum is Non-Profit 501C3 Aviation Museum and State Chartered Educational Foundation. A unique Museum in that many of the historic Aircraft are operational and fly regularly during the spring and summer months. The Museum is located at historic Republic Airport in Farmingdale NY. The Airport established back in the 1920s by Fairchild and Grumman Aviation. Eventually the home of Seversky Aviation during the 1930s it would evolve into Republic Aviation in 1939. In 1941 Republic produced the P-47 Thunderbolt which would go on to be the most mass produced fighter of WWII with over 15,000 built. Republic would go on to build the F-84, F-105, and A-10 Fighter Aircraft all right here in Long Island NY. Today the American Airpower Museum calls one of the last three surviving Republic Hangars home.

This awesome museum is located on the Republic Airport, the former airfield of the famous Republic Aviation Corporation, at Farmingdale, Long Island, New York. It has a remarkable collection of historic combat aircraft, many of them in actual flight condition, that usually perform at air...MoreThanks for taking the time to write a review. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit. We hope to see you again, perhaps in the spring or summer when flight operations are up an running more regularly or during one of our special events.

NYCB Theatre at Westbury

Reviewed By blackbear59 - New York City

We went to see Colors of Christmas. The show was very entertaining. The seats were great and the sound system was very good. We purchased the VIP package which offers a lounge area . The loung was a nice place to have a conversation prior to the show but the food is nothing spectacular. We enjoyed the VIP parking which provided a short walk to the venue. On this night entering and exiting was not an issue because the show was not that crowded. On the more crowded nightsthat I have been here , it does require a little patience and you should exit out within 15 minutes. Westbury is a very nice place to see a show.
