The relaxing days of summer will very soon turn into the very hectic days of school, running your kids from dance to karate to soccer and gymnastics. So, before the first day of school, plan to do a few memorable things with the kids. Below, we list 4 fun things that that we have a feeling your kids will really enjoy.
If your kids love the sounds of revving engines, you will want to take for a night of racing at Riverhead Raceway. On Saturday night, the racetrack will feature Monster Trucks, a 4 Cylinder Demolition Derby and Modifieds. Gates open at 3:00 p.m.
Spend a day with your kids at Splish Splash Water Park in Riverhead. Your whole family can enjoy non-stop water action on rides, including the Lazy River, Alien Invasion and the Abyss. And if you are looking to save some money on this adventure, be sure to look for coupons in Dunkin' Donuts and P.C. Richard & Son.
Spend an entire day at the beach, but make it all about the kids. Eat a picnic lunch filled with your kids' favorite snacks, build a sandcastle; fly a kite, go on a beach scavenger hunt and be sure to get in the waves with your kids. And if you still have the energy, stay late for some dinner and music.
The East End is filled with beautiful parks and nature hikes. A great hiking spot is at Quogue Wildlife Refuge where the trails are clearly marked. The refuge also features some resident animals to visit with as well as an indoor education center.
