End Of Summer Bucket List

Posted on August 29 2018

Summer is quickly coming to an end and back to school shopping has begun.  It’s always a little sad to see our days get shorter and feel the air get cooler.  But don’t let that get you down!  There are  plenty of fun activities and places to go before fall officially starts.  Your  favorite Ooh gals put together a must do local  end of summer bucket list.    You don’t have to travel too far to enjoy this beautiful weather :)


Sayville: Sail Priscilla

Priscilla has been sailing since 1888, owned by oyster men until 1963 from Connecticut to New York.   In 1963 owner John Woodside sailed her to the Bahamas and Main several times.  John donated her to the Suffolk Marine Museum in 1976.   Restoration of  Priscilla started in 2002, returning her to her original design.  You can now book a 2 hour sail on Priscilla, sailing from The Snapper Inn Restaurant on the Connetquot River in Oakdale.  Bonus, if you book on the weekend, you get a $30 voucher for the Snapper Inn.  For more information click the link below.




Huntington:  Prime an American Kitchen And Bar

For brunch to dinner entertainment check out Prime, located along Huntington Harbor.   Nothing beats dinning alfresco on the porch or grabbing drinks at the Wave Bar.   The water views are all the entertainment you will need.



Babylon: Belmont Lake state Park

This park is mainly visited by families seeking outdoor gatherings, picnics, and light sporting activities.   Want to work off some of those picnic calories or work up an appetite?  For 15 bucks you rent a  pedal boat or rowboat on the lake.    This is summer fun that won’t break the bank :)



Long Beach:  Long Beach Movie Nights

Outdoor movies on the beach, yes please!  Another fun, budget friendly activity to enjoy before summer ends.   Grab some friends or gather up the family and enjoy a movie classic on the beach.   Don’t forget to bring some snacks and something to sit on.



Ocean Beach, Fire Island:  Ooh la la Boutiques

Catch the ferry from Bayshore and head out to Ocean beach.  Just a short Ferry ride to beach fun with restaurants, bars, bikes rentals, and of course Ooh la la! Need an outfit to get you from beach to going out ready, stop in Ooh.  Our staff is friendly, knowledgeable and loves to help.  Extra bonus, we are located super close the ferry.  Come shop with us!
