It's time to grab those hiking shoes or a good pair of sneakers and prepare to go a little wild this week, as we show you plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors in and around Oyster Bay. You and your family can hike at Muttontown Preserve, where you'll likely see people on horseback as you visit the ruins of King Zog, the last Albanian monarch's castle. Shu Swamp (try saying that three times fast!) has a lovely toddler-friendly loop trail with a pond where you can feed the brown trout, sticklebacks and other fish. Plant lovers will enjoy the grounds at Planting Fields with two indoor greenhouses and outdoor specimen plantings. Birds of prey, snakes, and lizards, both captive and wild can be seen up close at the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary. Enjoy!
Coming up next week; we'll show you some exceptional places to sign the kids up for classes in Oyster Bay.
