May 6th is National Space Day. What better way to celebrate than by checking out the tremendous innovations in space exploration we've made over the years? Or by experiencing the beauty of space for yourself? There are great options to do both right in your new neighborhood. If you're looking at Nassau County homes for sale, you can pay a visit to the Cradle of Aviation Museum. Or if you're looking at Suffolk County homes for sale, you'll want to see the Vanderbilt Planetarium.
Spring is here, and that means it's time to break out the dust mops, clear away the cobwebs, and most importantly, get your garage organized. Of all the spring cleaning chores you will tackle, our REALTORS® know that cleaning the garage is one of the most challenging because it's typically the least organized space. Fortunately, with a little planning and a touch of elbow grease, you can use the following tips to finally get it organized!
Spring is when many of us emerge from semi-hibernation and realize it's time to get in shape. Luckily, there are a lot of great places to do that around Long Island. Our REALTORS® are here to share their favorite fitness centers in Nassau and Suffolk counties.
Located on the western end of Long Island, Nassau County borders the Queens borough of New York and is a bit more urbanized than Suffolk County. If you're in the market for Nassau County homes for sale, consider looking for one near these excellent fitness centers.
If you've been waiting for warm sunshine and blooms in your garden, wait no longer. Spring is here, and it's time to spruce up your backyard patio for outdoor parties, family events, and relaxing weekends. To create show-stopping appeal and an inviting atmosphere, our REALTORS® suggests adding potted plants filled with lush greenery and colorful flowers.
Potted plants will quickly add beauty, color, and fragrance to your outdoor space. However, when choosing patio plants for Nassau County homes for sale and Suffolk County homes for sale, it's essential to consider the local climate and weather conditions. In these areas, you can expect mild temperatures during spring and summer, cooler temperatures and rain during fall, and frost and snow during winter. With that in mind, here are some good choices for patio plants.
Sweet, savory, filling, and satisfying, acai bowls are a favorite breakfast choice for some of our REALTORS®. Not only are acai bowls tasty, they have loads of health benefits. Acai berries have strong antioxidant properties, and when adding extra fruit, oatmeal, or peanut butter, you can also get some extra protein, fiber, and Vitamin C in your diet.
Because acai bowls often have many ingredients, making them at home isn't always convenient. However, if you're lucky enough to live in an urban area like Long Island, you can easily find several great local smoothie shops that make some fantastic acai bowls. Here are some of our favorites.
March 30 is Take a Walk in the Park Day, and with winter's ice grip finally beginning to loosen, our REALTORS® are excited to do just that. Luckily, we have a lot of great places to go for a hike here on Long Island.
Located just a short drive from New York City, Nassau County offers some lovely parks and trails on western Long Island. These great hiking spots are also convenient to many Nassau County homes for sale.
