Old Bethpage Village Restoration

Reviewed By Sandy317 - Massapequa Park, New York

This place is a treasure. We went to the 1863 Thanksgiving Celebration; almost all of the buildings were open and in several they were cooking dinner as in the old days. The houses were nice and warm from the cooking fires and the smells were wonderful. We will return for the Candlelight Evenings in December.

Here are some STRONG SUGGESTIONS or HELPFUL HINTS upfront:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. This place deals in CASH ONLY...so bring lots of cash ($200 or more is safe as tickets for 2 Adults + 2 kids with bonus rides will total $100). Food and other activity costs will run you more depending on how long you spend at White Post.

2. Pay the extra $10 per kid for the Train Ride & Pony Ride tokens -- WHEN YOU BUY YOUR TICKETS.

3. Bring the kids some BATHING SUITS or clothes they can wet in and change in to DRY clothes...otherwise the Disney themed waterslides are OUT...

***We did not know about the water slides when we got there and our kids really wanted to do it.***

4. Everyone should wear COMFORTABLE CLOTHING to deal with outdoor activities and animal related interactions.

5. To get your money's worth for you & your family, expect to spend at least 3 hours...or more.

6. Do the enclosed BIRD FEEDING area. It is worth -- Paying $3 per feeding stick or $5 for 2 feeding sticks...so, the birds will come to you and your kids to eat the seeds.


NOW, my review. White Post Farms was a REAL FUN TIME for my children. THEY LOVED IT! They could not get enough of this place...they wore us out and later themselves.

It was worth seeing them happy and full of smiles while they had fun at White Post Farms.

We would definitely return to this place -- AGAIN!!!!

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.

This awesome museum is located on the Republic Airport, the former airfield of the famous Republic Aviation Corporation, at Farmingdale, Long Island, New York. It has a remarkable collection of historic combat aircraft, many of them in actual flight condition, that usually perform at air...MoreThanks for taking the time to write a review. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit. We hope to see you again, perhaps in the spring or summer when flight operations are up an running more regularly or during one of our special events.

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.

NYCB Theatre at Westbury

Reviewed By blackbear59 - New York City

We went to see Colors of Christmas. The show was very entertaining. The seats were great and the sound system was very good. We purchased the VIP package which offers a lounge area . The loung was a nice place to have a conversation prior to the show but the food is nothing spectacular. We enjoyed the VIP parking which provided a short walk to the venue. On this night entering and exiting was not an issue because the show was not that crowded. On the more crowded nightsthat I have been here , it does require a little patience and you should exit out within 15 minutes. Westbury is a very nice place to see a show.

The intimate parlor setting was perfect for the performance, but seats are a bit uncomfortable and sometimes it's difficult to see clearly when a tall person is in front of you.The acts were very good.

The Adventure Park at Long Island

Located in Wheatley Heights, NY on five spectacular wooded acres of the Henry Kaufman Campgrounds, The Adventure Park at Long Island is the area's most exciting new attraction. The Adventure Park appeals to outdoor fun-seekers age 7 through adult and features multiple zip lines and aerial ropes challenge courses.

Everything was fantastic. Only suggestion is they need a few more staff to help with the warm up and some of the easier courses as we were held up quite a bit by some kids the weren't proficient on the equipment.

Belmont Lake State Park

Reviewed By LongIslandGiirl - Deer Park, New York

I have lived in the area for yeRs, and have frequented the park every summer , going on o picnics, BBQ's and the like. However, this year in efforts to stay healthy, I have begun walking and/or bike riding thru here on my lunch hour, since I normally sit a lot for my job.
There is nothing better to clear your head and enjoy nature. I go through the trails which are safe, although I am often with a co-worker. The birds and geese, ducks etc are plentiful and the lake is just so nice. You can rent a rowboat or paddle boat for a foster and do the lake if you wish,
Nice picnic facilities, and clean bathrooms.

If your having difficulty and running out of time (1hr, max) you can request help from the staff and they will provide you with additional clues. Its a lot...MoreHi Anthony, thanks for taking the time to leave a review letting everyone know exactly what to expect. We are happy to hear you had fun, hope to see you again soon!
