The grounds are lovely and the home is wonderful. Tours are limited to Thursday through Sunday at 1pm and have a $12 charge. There is an attractive cafe also. We enjoyed walking around looking at the well maintained grounds and several weddings in progress.

Bethpage Ballpark

Reviewed By VaBelle35 - Manassas, VA

When I checked into my room at the Residence Inn, I saw a ballpark outside the window. I looked it up online and saw that it was a professional (not MLB) baseball team ballpark and they were playing a playoff game that night. I love baseball and frequent our local MLB and AA team stadiums at home, so this was right up my alley.

Parking is across the street, but I could have (and should have) walked from my hotel. It is well lit, lots of people and 2 people at the cross street to the park who can answer questions.

Inside the park was very nice. Typical of minor league ball parks. The entertainment between innings was not as diverse as those at MLB minor league parks, but was still fun (just a t-shirt toss).

This was a playoff game an it was packed with families. As a solo person, I was able to get the seat right behind home plate, which was fun.

Definitely a great place to visit. I highly recommend it.

Blydenburgh Park

Reviewed By RebelTimeTraveler - Smithtown, New York

I cannot recount how many times I have walked the trails of this beautiful park sandwiched between major roads in a populous suburban area. Could be 100 or more. But, when you are inside, it is you and nature, including a pond/lake big enough that you cannot see the whole thing from any spot; it took me 4 hours to walk around it. This park is beautiful in all seasons, but mostly in the fall and when it snows. I went kayaking on the pond one day and it was one of the most relaxing days I can remember. Great place. You have to drive there unless you live nearby, but walk once inside. There are entrances on three sides, though one fairly hidden (you have to drive through side streets) and one on a secondary road. Is it one of the world's great attractions? No. But, it is among the best LI has to offer.

Our family of four just escaped the Hidden Temple Room! What a fantastic time we had. The room was challenging, but not impossible. Our GameMaster Brandon was helpful and enthusiastic. He really made our day special. Also, Zach was super friendly when booking. Can't wait to go back and try another room. Thanks guys!

Wouldn't go anywhere else to see a movie. Buy tickets in advance online due to smaller theaters shows will sell out. Always is crowded so parking may be an issue get there early because there is usually a line for snacks.
