It sounds like a perfect day to shake off the winter doldrums and take in some fresh air by discovering (or rediscovering) these hidden places on Long Island.

From a seal-watching spot at Jones Beach to an oasis in Babylon, you can decompress and enjoy the natural beauty of Long Island at these sites that are off the beaten path.
