Best Things to Do on Long Island in June With Kids

June's arrival means families can take advantage of the sun, sand, and surf that Long Island beaches have to offer, but even more local attractions and activities are reopening.

We've got loads of fun all across the region, including must-visit parks and playgrounds, spraygrounds, and outdoor eats. It's also high season for strawberry picking and we're particularly excited for the return of the annual Mattituck Lions Club Strawberry Festival

We've got plenty more things to do in our Event Calendar, which is growing by the day, and below, we've rounded up our curated list for the best of June, with 13-can't-miss activities. Read on for the fabulous list of must-dos, and find more seasonal happenings in our Summer Fun Guide.

As always, if an event piques your interest, click through to our listing for all the details, including addresses and times. And keep in mind: On Long Island, especially now, really cool things to do with kids often book up quickly, so register or buy your tickets ASAP.
