21 Aug Where to Dock and Dine on Long Island
Summer is coming to a close and labor day is almost here. For many, the end of summer means it's getting close to the end of boating season and warm, sunny days. With this, it's only natural that we try to enjoy the warm weather, while it lasts. One way to get out and enjoy the weather is to go out and eat, especially since many restaurants here on Long Island offer outdoor seating. There's no better way to enjoy the day and spend time with the ones we love than over a plate of food. Luckily for us on Long Island, we don't necessarily have to jump into a car to go to a restaurant for lunch or dinner.
We are truly blessed that Long Island is home to some great places to eat. We have restaurants that cater to boaters and to lovers of the majestic seas, and you don't necessarily need a car. Here are some of the places you can dock and dine on Long Island.
