Did you ever wonder what it would be like to live in a perpetual state of June?
Think about it: In what other month on Long Island are the flowers blooming quite so brightly; is the sky a more colorful blue; are the temperatures quite so, temperate?
June on Long Island is a month of transition—from spring to summer, from the end of the school year to the beginning of vacation time. But it also a month of remarkable possibilities, 30 days to celebrate all we love about life on our overcrowded, traffic-strewn stretch of real estate.
Four weeks remain in the school year. That’s plenty of time to cherish dad, enjoy a seasonal festival, tap into your inner STEM self, or even join in Triple Crown horse racing anticipation. Whatever your preference, there’s plenty to keep you and your kids engaged until the school year concludes.
A word of caution, however. Long Island is hosting two of the nation’s premier sporting events in June. Traffic might be heavy in Nassau County for the Belmont Stakes on June 9. And it certainly will be heavy on the East End on Father’s Day weekend with the U.S. Open golf championship being played in Southampton. Allow extra time if driving on either weekend.
Otherwise, away we go. Remember, our Long Island events calendar offers exciting family options as they develop throughout the month. You might also want to visit our guide to Long Island theme parks and water parks as the weather (hopefully) gets warmer.
