"Fire Island - in the summer. ..." Fire Island Tip by DaveAL

Fire Island, New York City: 2 reviews and 2 photos

Fire Island - in the summer. If you have a free day(it takes about 1.5 hrs total travel time from Manhattan), then go. It has the best beaches on the east coast (I think) and feels like you just went 200 miles from NYC. There are a few towns and a significant nightlife in some. Accomodations though are extremely expensive.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
