Fun and Leisure Weekend Activities on Long Island

Long Island is a land of diversity, where you can see various cultures that inspire a multitude of ways you can have fun and enjoy the area. Long Island Railroad serves the island, and you can conveniently and comfortably get around as you sample the island’s fun and leisure activities. Here are just some of the things you can do while you are on the island.


Montauk Point Lighthouse is a perfect point to take in the view of the Atlantic Ocean. If you’re lucky, you can get a glimpse of the seals that come to the shorea to bathe in the sun. You can also learn all about the history of the oldest lighthouse on Long Island and in all of New York State by visiting the museum. 

Beach Activities

Pack your beach bag! Jones Beach State Park is a perfect spot to enjoy if you like biking or playing basketball by the beach. While here, you can enjoy delicious burgers, traditional Mexican dishes, and refreshing beverages by the seaside. That sounds like the perfect Saturday, doesn’t it?

Long Island Aquarium

If you are a marine life enthusiast, Long Island Aquarium affords you an up-close encounter with sea life in both indoor and outdoor exhibits. If you’d rather take an interactive tour, the Atlantis Explorer Boat takes you for a 90-minute educational tour of the Peconic River. And, if you have the nerve, you can even swim with the sharks in a cage dive in the Lost City of Atlantis Shark Exhibit.

Fire Island

Fire Island is the perfect relaxation spot away from the concrete jungle of New York City. You can enjoy tranquility on this sparsely populated island, which has eye-catching beaches dotted with dunes and natural wilderness. Enjoy breathing the unpolluted air, because the whole island is car-free, and is the perfect space if you love meditation and yoga.

Sagamore Hill National Historic Site

If you love history, this is a must-see. It is also known as the Summer White House and was owned by Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States.
