Ocean Beach

Cars? Where we're going, we don't need cars.

Forgive the modified "Back to the Future" reference, but it's true. Fire Island, a wonderful day trip and summer destination for Long Islanders, has no roads. Thus, no cars.

Imagine that, a place on Long Island with no cars. Dare we dream? (OK, there are a few cars, but the regulations are extremely strict.)

Here's a comprehensive guide to Ocean Beach, the hub of Fire Island, for the daytripper/weekender.
