The summer’s not quite over yet, and there’s plenty to see and do with the family before the kids start heading back to school in September. We all know that Long Island is the best place to enjoy the beach, outdoor activities, and great seafood in the summer, but that’s only the beginning of the fun we’ve got in our neighborhoods.
While we may not have an abundance of drive-in movies like they did way back when (and they’re still scattered about the country if you can find them), what we do have are a bunch of great outdoor movies on Long Island happening in parks throughout Nassau County! We’ve got a list for you of all the outdoor movie nights through the month of August for you and your family to enjoy. Pack up your lawn chairs and snacks, and head out to these nearby parks for a night that’s sure to be full of fun!
