Last week Meg and Matt rented a house on Fire Island (Kismet to be exact), so I got to spend a couple of days over there. Fire Island is a popular summer spot for Long Islanders. It’s only about a 25 minute ferry ride from Bay Shore (a town on the south shore of Long Island). Even though it’s only a short ride over, you really feel like you’ve escaped to a beautiful faraway beach town. It’s lovely! There is a very (very) limited amount of cars over there, the dress is always pretty casual, and the beaches are gorgeous.
Have you ever been? If not, and you’re looking for a calm, laid-back vacation you should check out a rental on Fire Island for sure.
Check out a few pictures from our visit:
