- Spending Time in Eisenhower Park: Not far from Hofstra campus is an excellent public park complete with batting cages, mini-golf, four full golf courses and countless other attractions for visitors. Spend some quality time in the batting cages, go for a stroll or just lean up against a tree and crack open a book.
- Concert Series: Earlier, I made mention of the multitude of beaches Long Island has to offer. Well, on one of LI's most famous beaches (Jones Beach) lies an amphitheater, which plays host to a summer concert series every year. Great bands from the Allman Brothers to System of a Down come to visit and put on a great show every year. So, after you've enjoyed the waves, perhaps you can check out who's playing and catch a show in the evening.
