Summer is 93 days this year. That’s roughly 1,116 hours of daylight, 14 weekends and 28 Friday and Saturday nights. That’s a lot of time, but it goes quickly and soon, we’re already halfway to winter. But we won’t talk about that now. What we will talk about are all the things you can do for the next 93 days of summer. Splish Splash is debuting Bootlegger’s Run, a new magnetically driven water coaster, in Calverton. The flying swings at Adventureland are soaring again in Farmingdale. The patio bar is open at Miller’s Ale House in Levittown, Deer Park, and by September, in Commack. Marvel in Lido Beach is serving strawberry and pistachio swirl cones dipped in freshly melted chocolate and all of Long Island is putting Sandy in the past and rebuilding for the future. Like every summer, Long Island is the place to be, whether it’s on the North Shore, South Shore, East End or walking down Sunrise Highway in flip flops. So, without further ado, we present to you our annual summer to-do list. From outdoor concerts to farmers’ markets to celebrity meet-and-greets, we’ve got it all here in easy-to-peruse form for your planning pleasure. But, we can’t do it all. Now it’s up to you to decide what you’re going to say when someone asks, “Hey, what did you do this summer?”
The following calendar will highlight many of the summer’s best events and venues, on and around Long Island. We suggest you bookmark this page and check back often. We will constantly be adding new events and new information as they become available.
