In a few weeks I am off to Fire Island. This is one of my favorite get aways on Long Island. It is composed of a number of little towns each with it's own style. You get there by ferry and there are almost no cars at all allowed. To get around its wagons and bikes for the most part. I like to rent a house for a week and just kick back and relax. No fuss no fancy, just great beaches and good time spent with friends and family.
If you have not visited Fire Island, plan a day trip and see what you are missing.
