Reviewed By HenryInMichigan - Troy, MI

First, be prepared for high tide. Our beach towels and chairs were soaked around 12:30pm even though it was far behind waterline in the morning.

Other than our tidal happening, the beach is great. Very good quality sand quite environment. I like the idea of no amplified sound rule.

We used a concession at the field 6 and the food is good.

We went there for a family outing today and we were surprised to find this wonderful gem. Although this museum appear small at first, it is not, There is a lot to see, aircraft exhibits, space exhibits,interactive exhibits, multiple floors of exhibits, a Fireman's Museum and a cafe. Today we visited the space exhibits. They have thing such as real LEM Moon Lander. space suits, rockets and much more. We also visited the airplane hanger where they a a A-6F Airplane, F-14 Tom Cat Airplane and a A-10 Warthog Airplane. There is so much to see that it will take you multiple days to explore it. There are multiple floors and a skywalk where you can see the exhibits from above the main floor. This is great place for children. There is a lot to see and learn. We will be returning.

Governor's Comedy Cabaret

Reviewed By Dan D - Deer Park, New York

So you are sick of bowling, watching Netflix, going to another restaurant with that other couple or going to the very expensive movie theater. Try something different and grab a show at Governors comedy club. Even if it isn't a headliner of a show it is still a cool experience to see someone live who is trying to make others laugh. It is a living experience to see someone who has written jokes and is delivering them for your enjoyment...it is an art form like seeing a live play (but at a fraction of the cost). Now I am not comparing a C list Comedian to seeing Les Miserable on Broadway. I am just saying to try something new and go to Governor's to catch a show next time your neighbors say, "you want to grad dinner Saturday night?".
I think once you do you will come back more than you think.

American Airpower Museum

The American Airpower Museum is Non-Profit 501C3 Aviation Museum and State Chartered Educational Foundation. A unique Museum in that many of the historic Aircraft are operational and fly regularly during the spring and summer months. The Museum is located at historic Republic Airport in Farmingdale NY. The Airport established back in the 1920s by Fairchild and Grumman Aviation. Eventually the home of Seversky Aviation during the 1930s it would evolve into Republic Aviation in 1939. In 1941 Republic produced the P-47 Thunderbolt which would go on to be the most mass produced fighter of WWII with over 15,000 built. Republic would go on to build the F-84, F-105, and A-10 Fighter Aircraft all right here in Long Island NY. Today the American Airpower Museum calls one of the last three surviving Republic Hangars home.
