Winter on Long Island brings a unique atmosphere with its cool, crisp air. The season is a perfect time to enjoy outdoor adventures to indoor cultural experiences. So let's embrace the winter season on Long Island and enjoy all that it has to offer.


Here's a peek at our fun list:

  1. Wineries and vineyards: Long Island is known for its wine-making region and many wineries offer tastings and tours year-round.
  2. Visit Jones Beach State Park to observe the flocks of seabirds that gather on the shore. This natural phenomenon is a delight for bird lovers and nature enthusiasts.
  3. Museums and historic sites: Take the opportunity to explore some of the region's rich history by visiting museums and historic sites, such as the Long Island Museum and the Oyster Bay Historical Society.
  4. Shopping: Take a stroll through the charming downtown areas of villages such as Huntington, Port Jefferson, and Patchogue to enjoy shopping, dining, and entertainment.
  5. Ice skating: There are some outdoor ice rinks and indoor ice skating rinks open in the winter, offering a fun activity.
  6. Festivals and fairs: During the winter, Long Island hosts several festivals and fairs, such as the Long Island Winterfest, the North Fork Foodie Tour, and the Long Island Craft Classic.
  7. How about seal-watching? From boat cruises to seal walks at some of Long Island beaches, you have plenty of options. You can even try spotting them on your own.
  8. Some great parks to enjoy a winter hike include Hempstead Lake State Park, Hechsher Park, Sunken Meadow State Park, the Fire Island Lighthouse boardwalk, and Arthur J. Hendrickson Park. 

Long Island also offers a variety of indoor activities during the winter like watching the Islanders play ice hockey at the UBS Arena in Belmont or the many cultural events, museum exhibitions, and theater performances. 

So embrace the winter season on Long Island and enjoy all that it has to offer, from outdoor adventures to indoor cultural experiences. Don't forget to wrap up warm and take in the serene beauty of the winter landscape.

Those sound like a lot of fun things, but I don't think I could ever embrace the weather that is cold like that, haha.  Is this an entry into this month's challenge?  It should be and you should post a link to it on the challenge post!!!  What’s Love Got to do with It?

Snow on the banks of a flowing stream is always such a beautiful addition to the natural beauty.  Thanks for sharing the shot.  mdm
