Summer Activities on Long Island for 2023

If you’re not familiar with Long Island, and all of the fun it offers its residents, you’re in luck today! Long Island summer activities are happening almost every day, so it can be difficult to find what you can do and where. Thankfully, I spend some time to locate and then share all the great stuff happening each summer in Nassau County and Suffolk County. Here’s what’s happening throughout both Long Island counties in the summer of 2023. (Just remember, you do need a town recreation card to enter many of the parks where these events and activities are happening.
