Fine Outdoor Living
There is no shortage of ways to get active outside in West Islip. You will find the many gorgeous trails and parks invite you to spend time in the great outdoors. Try the Branford Trolley Trail for an interesting trek across a long footbridge; an abandoned trolley track adds real character to the trail. Also check out the nearby High Line Trail, providing green space and maintained walking areas across the tops of buildings throughout the area, giving a dizzying-yet-exciting way to get some exercise. Passing through several neighborhoods, the High Line offers a uniquely fun experience.
Great Italian Restaur
New York State has a large Italian population and this is reflected in the restaurants of beautiful West Islip. One of the most highly rated restaurants in the area, Nonnina provides an Italian fine dining experience that should not be missed, while boasting an authentic Italian experience. Visit on Wednesday for their weekly 50 percent discount on wine by the bottle. For a more personal, intimate dining experience with a few friends, consider renting Nonnina's private rooms. Full service is provided with rentals, and will keep you and your group in a quieter environment.
West Islip is close to one of New York's most exciting theme parks, the ever-exciting Adventureland. The park is open through the spring, summer, and fall for days full of warm weather fun. Rides are available in many forms, from very tame children's rides through dizzyingly high rollercoasters. Outdoor games, an arcade, and plenty of delicious food items make the park a great choice for spending the day outside. Take a group for the entire day, or just wander the park with a friend. With all this to offer, Adventureland really is more like a "land" or neighborhood than a theme park simply because of its size.
