Fall Fun Runs/Walks for Long Island Families

Just because the cooler weather is coming doesn't mean that you and your family can't get outside and get healthy. In fact, fall is the perfect season to get active while spending some quality time together.

There are several organizations hosting Kids Fun Runs this season in conjunction with longer races for adults. It's the perfect way to hit the pavement for your health--and a good cause. For more family-friendly activities, be sure to check out our Long Island Events Calendar.

6 Long Island Boardwalk Gems

The best part of the beach isn't always the sand and water. Sometimes, it's a quaint stroll along the boardwalk. And Long Island has plenty of them! Gone are the splinter fears and potential pitfalls of yesterday; most Long Island boardwalks have been refurbished with less flammable, sustainable woods. These boardwalk spots offer something special for kids and adults alike.
