Summer may be over on Long Island, but don’t fret. Fall is one of the best times to visit –our coastal climate keeps things a bit warmer than the rest of the continent, so the leaf peeping season extends well into November..

But the most anticipated part of the season is the fall festivals. Find a full schedule of events and check out some of our ‘Top Ten’ festivals below. All events at www.discoverlongisland.com
