Also, if you’re looking for something more relaxing, the park contains picnic areas and even hiking trails, which would be great for a romantic outing with that special someone or for a company or family picnic.

5. Guy Turchiano Studios
Guy Turchiano is a very talented photographer who specializes in the New York/Long Island area. He also takes nature photographs such as waterfalls, countryside creeks and oceans. Guy was inspired to pursue his love of photography after buying a large screen HD television for his parents as a gift and seeing the beautiful pictures on screen and wanting to recreate it himself. It started as just a hobby but then blossomed into calendars for co-workers, large prints for family members and grew into his own showroom. If you visit his showroom at Guy Turchiano Studios, you can find his work for sale and buy a piece to display at home or at the office. This studio is the perfect stop for anybody interested in photography or, for that matter, anybody that enjoys breathtaking views.
