Fire Island Getaway

Posted on July 19 2017

      If you are looking for a summer day trip or a weekend getaway, Fire Island is the way to go! Hop on a ferry and wash away your worries at the beach or the bar in Ocean Beach, Fire Island. Take a ferry from the Bay Shore Fire Island Ferries terminal and in less than thirty minutes you'll be in paradise.

      No cars, no shoes, no worries once you are on Fire Island. The town of Ocean Beach has lots to do for people of any age! Walk down to the ocean side and soak up the sun all day long. You can easily explore the island's other towns by taking the water taxi, but Ocean Beach definitely has it all! If you are looking to have a few cocktails with friends you are in the right place! Happy hour or not, the bars and restaurants will always have you covered with drinks all day and night. Hit Houser's Bar and enjoy their signature Zippy Cooler cocktail in the sand and watch the boats cruise by. If you're hungry, have a nice sit down meal with delicious food at McGuire's! They also have one of the best sunset views in town. Go to CJ's bar for music, fun, and of course the island's most notorious drink, the Rocket Fuel! If you are craving a late night food fix, try Town Pizza's Cold Cheese slice with Boom-Boom will not regret it!   

     Last but most certainly not least, SHOPPING! You need to hit Ooh La La's Fire Island store. It is located on Bayberry Walk, right next to the Blue Waters Hotel. Everything you could possibly need is there! From clothes and accessories to beach towels, flip flops,and more! The staff is at your service and ready to style you from head to toe in Ooh so you can hit the town or the beach in style! Come explore Long Island's greatest treasure, Fire Island and of course stop in and shop Ooh La La, Ocean Beach. We'd love to see you there! xoxo
