My New York Life
Hi, my name is Nicole, and I live in Long Island, NY. I had two weeks of vacation for Easter, and I found a few places where you can go and have fun.
The first fun thing that I can think of is a place called Tanglewood Preserve. It is located in Rockville Centre. What you can do there is to look at some really cool animals. You can even hold a friendly snake, and a lizard with a blue tongue and very sharp claws! You can go outside to see two goats. They’re dwarf goats. You can even get a tour. The tour guide will tell you stories about the animals that live there. One is a love story about a rooster and a hen. The other story is about smuggled baby turtles.
Another place where you can have fun is Eisenhower Park, the biggest park I’ve ever seen. There’s mini golf with the holes numbered 1-18. I got to play with my mom, dad and my little brother. My dad got in 1st place because he knows the most about golf, and he also used strategies to hit the ball. My mom got in 2nd place. She didn’t do well at first, but then she got better. I got in 3rd place. I did horribly at first, but then I didn’t care, and then I got better. My brother got in last place. That’s how he lost the mini golf game. There are other things you can do too, like ride your bike, barbeque or play at the playground, but that’s another story.
The last place that I suggest to have fun is Christopher Morley Park. It’s located in Searingtown. It’s the second biggest park I’ve ever seen! It has three playgrounds, large, medium and small, plus a small fun area. Then, there’s an outdoor ice-skating rink. Next to that is a pond. Watch out for goose poop!! Across from the big park are some courts. There is the tennis court, an empty court, a volleyball court, and a basketball court. There is also a fitness trail. It has a lot of fun exercise stations, where you get to work out .You should really try all of them!
I hope you will visit Long Island, New York, and you’ll get to try all the activities I suggested to you. I also hope you have as much fun as I did at those places.
