In the heart of the hamlet of Old Bethpage is Old Bethpage Village Restoration.
Old Bethpage Village recreates the times of pre-Civil War Long Island and shows the agricultural and commercial, as well as the domestic lifestyle of the era.
There are more than 55 historic buildings on 200 acres, all original structures.
The Old Bethpage Village Restoration is the center of community activity.
It is a wonderful historic destination and can be part of family life for those living near the village especially if the family interests involve historical America.
This is just one reason to drive out and visit Old Bethpage!
Directions from the Southern State Parkway:
Southern State Parkway to Exit 28A Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway (NY135) North. Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway to Old Country Road East exit 10. Right turn onto Old Country Road Eastbound to Round Swamp Road. Right onto Round Swamp Road and village entrance will be on your left.

There are many advantages to living in the towns and villages of Long Island’s South Shore. There are abundant beaches and marinas as well as national, state and town parks.
Captree is a fisherman's paradise and a place to take the family.
Some of the fishing boats stay in the Great South Bay and others go out the Fire Island Inlet into the Atlantic Ocean.
Directions: Take the Robert Moses Parkway South. At the end of the Robert Moses, head east following the signs. As with any state park, there is a parking fee; if you have a New York State Empire Pass the parking fee is waived.
All of this is available to you on Long Island!
For more information visit The Captree Fleet.

I met some wonderful people, who like me, would rather wake up early and enjoy the wonders of nature than stay up late and party as vacationers do on the larger islands. (Little Cayman is the "little sister" island of Grand Cayman but does not have its nightlife, population or traffic.)
A daytime bike ride after two spectacular dives, and an evening of playing card games or dominoes after a wonderful relaxing dinner, is the way of life here. Does it sound like an exciting vacation? You must define "exciting" for yourself.
For me, it's my kind of vacation!
