Before You Head to the Beach, Bring These Items

One of the most popular spots to go and unwind during the summer is the beach! When living on Long Island, it’s not just a location, but a way of life — and we wouldn’t have it any other way! Besides knowing where to go and find your favorite spot in the sand to “set up camp,” there are a few things you should pack before you leave for the seashore. While some of these items might be a “given,” here’s a friendly reminder of what to carry with you:


Money + Identification

While you might have these items with you in the car, many beachgoers opt to leave these in their vehicle the minute they start to walk to the sand. No matter what, it’s essential to have money with you, just in case you’d like to purchase food or drinks while you’re at the beach. In terms of having an ID, that’s important, too, for those “just in case” moments. Now, if you don’t feel confident leaving these items in your beach bag, you can invest in a secret bank which will keep them out of plain sight and give you peace of mind!

Cooler

If you’re planning on bringing snacks, bottles of water, and ice cream, then it’s best to have a cooler on deck. While some beachgoers might bring a large plastic cooler with them, you don’t have to go overboard — bring something small and compact to keep your necessities cold all day long. Another great tip is to keep ice packs (in addition to actual ice) in your cooler, which will come in handy just in case you need another way to cool off from the blistering sun! 

Extra Clothes

Sometimes, your day can go a bit unexpected. Whether some rain comes your way or you and your friends opt to go out to dinner after the beach, it’s always best to bring an extra set of clothes. Another benefit of bringing spare clothes with you? If the sun gets too strong or you get too cold, you’ll already be prepared for the change in the forecast! 

Sunglasses + Sunscreen

These might be standards for every beachgoer, but it’s essential to be reminded of how vital they are. Since even the weakest of the sun’s rays can be harmful to your body, it’s crucial to protect your eyes and your skin. When looking for sunglasses, opt to have those that have a high UV protection level or are polarized. In terms of sunscreen, whether it’s lotion or spray, it’s crucial to choose a sunscreen with an SPF between 15 and 50, which will give your skin the protection that it needs from those harmful UV rays!

Since 1988, Dynasty Limousine has been the ideal choice for families in and around the Long Island area. Our massive fleet of limousines, party buses and shuttles will make it easy for everyone to travel in style and comfort!

Beach Hacks 2019

If you’ve lived on Long Island for quite some time, then you’ll know off the top of your head what one of the most popular spots is during the summertime: the beach! Whether it’s Jones or Robert Moses, there are plenty of sandy places to reap the benefits of the gorgeous summer weather! Before you pack up the car and head on down to the shore, here are some “beach hacks” to keep in mind.


Secret Bank
Let’s face it: not everyone is honest. Sometimes, you’ll find yourself walking away from your belongings, go for a swim in the ocean, and return to your blanket to see that you’re missing something. If you’re looking to try and eliminate a problem, it’s best to purchase a secret bank.

No, this won’t look like a vault, but rather a tube of sunscreen or tanning oil. In fact, the product will look and feel just like the actual items, but each tube will be empty — until you remove the cap and place money/personal belongings inside. This will be one of the best ways to deter someone from temptation. Sure, you don’t have to bring your wallet — but if you happen to want ice cream and don’t have money on you, it might be tough to ask for an “I.O.U.” policy.

Sand-less Sandwich
Oh, you know that feeling well: sitting down on your beach blanket, ready to eat a sandwich — and then the minute you place it down to grab a soda, the wind blows, and sand particles get in between the meat and cheese. Yeah, it’s not something that any beach-goer looks forward to, but there is a clever hack to prevent it from happening: using a fitted sheet.

Whether you happen to have an old fitted sheet or purchase one from the dollar store, bring it to the beach and place it down on the sand. Once spread out, place some heavy objects in each corner and then pull the edges up around the buckets. This will be a perfect way to have a sand-free dining area!

How Long Should I Wait to RSVP to a Wedding?

When you think of weddings, what comes to mind first besides the actual reception? Well, you’ll either have to purchase a new outfit, buy a gift, or try to remember where you put that invitation — but what about actually RSVP-ing on the big day? Better yet, what if you’re not entirely sure if you’ll be attending the wedding? While there is no written rule about how quickly you should RSVP, here are some things to keep in mind before making your move.


Attending
If you decided to attend the wedding, then congratulations: you’re in for a wonderful time! However, if you’re not sure when you’re going to RSVP to the hosts, then it’s best to keep in mind a specific, unscripted time frame. Over at The Knot, they strongly recommend that you should RSVP no later than a few weeks before the big day — preferably two-to-three weeks. This will not only show your hosts proper wedding etiquette, but it will also give them enough notice. Now, if you’re not attending the wedding (whether you chose not to or had a conflicting arrangement), then there’s a different protocol.

Not Attending
As we mentioned earlier, whether you’re not able to attend the wedding due to personal reasons (which is perfectly normal, especially if you barely know the hosts or haven’t seen them for a while), or you have a prior arrangement that day/night, it’s best to let the hosts know as soon as possible. The reason being is that not only will it give them enough time to invite a replacement if needed, but it will also give them enough time to remove a plate at the table before they create their seating chart.

Prom Hacks 2019

Ah, it’s prom season again! Whether this is your very first time attending or you’re planning for a future prom, there’s nothing better than dancing the night at this elegant occasion! While gearing up for the big day can be rather stressful, some tips can make the process much easier — and we’re here to share a few of them with you! 


Bring a Handbag
Ladies, if you’re planning on going to prom without a clutch or small evening bag, then you might want to rethink that. This is one of the best ways to keep your phone, ID/driver’s license, and money in a safe, convenient place. Granted, you might feel tempted not to bring one and go empty-handed — but if your gown doesn’t have pockets, then it would be rather tough to trot around prom holding your belongings (or have a greater chance of losing them).

Keep it Safe
If you’re planning on rocking a new hairdo or want to do your makeup differently, then it’s best to keep it safe on the big day. Sometimes, a look doesn’t go as planned — and if you only have a few minutes to redo your look before the limo arrives, then that could be a nightmare. If you do want to rock a new look at prom, then it’s best to practice a few days before or if you’re having your look created by a professional, see if you can have a test run a few days in advance!

Have Fun
Sometimes, it’s possible to get caught up in the moment and forget that you’re supposed to have fun. From photo ops to making sure that you don’t miss dancing to your favorite song, there are many factors in the equation that might override the joy of prom. Just sit back, relax, and let the night happen! It’s your big night, so shine bright and have fun!

Luxury Consignment Stores on Long Island 2019

It’s no secret that some of the most-coveted goods carry a designer label and hefty price tag. However, if you’re looking to reap the benefits of a designer product but don’t want to dish out thousands of dollars, then it may seem a little bit tricky — until you shop at luxury consignment shops. These stores take “pre-loved” designer goods and sell them for a fraction of the cost. Here are a few popular spots to check out on Long Island:

One of the best shops to peruse on Long Island happens to be Designer Exchange of Syosset! Whether you’re looking for the coveted Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis or a classic Chanel Jumbo Flap, this is the spot to be! Having opened their doors in 2012, Designer Exchange gives Long Islanders the opportunity to own the designer piece of their dreams for a reasonable price! Some of the items in their shop range from new to pre-owned (or “pre-loved” in the designer community), and if you can dream it, they most certainly might have it!

Address: 8 Railroad Ave, Glen Head, NY

Another great spot to find gently-used designer goods is at Worth Repeating in Glen Head! This boutique and consignment shop has everything from designer clothing (such as those popular Burberry jackets), shoes (such as Christian Louboutin heels) and so much more. This store is quite beautiful because you never know what great designer item you’ll find sitting on the shelves! Not only is this store perfect for designer items for yourself, but you’ll also be able to find the ideal gift for a loved one here, too!

If you’re looking for a place to play a game or two, here are some locations to check out:


Eisenhower Park

A classic staple of great parks on Long Island happens to be Eisenhower Park, which is located in the heart of East Meadow!

Where to See Seals on Long Island 2019

One of the best kept secrets on Long Island is that you can go seal-watching (yes, you read that correctly). Believe it or not, you can see these incredible creatures in your own backyard, just like the locals in La Jolla, California! If you’re looking to see some seals in the wild, here are some great, humane ways to do that:


Freeport Water Taxi
Location: 211 Woodcleft Avenue Nautical Mile, Freeport, NY 11520

Right in the heart of Freeport happens to be this wonderful water taxi. This fantastic service offers seal enthusiasts two-hour tours to see these incredible aquatic creatures in the wild. Of course, there is no guarantee that you’ll see a vast abundance of these mammals on the day of your tour (they’re wild, of course), but it will indeed be a beautiful sight to see on Long Island. The tours are offered throughout the fall (October-November) and spring (March-April) — but usually stop at the end of April, since the seals will start to migrate.

Captain Lou’s Seal Watching Cruise
Location: 31 Woodcleft Avenue, Freeport, NY 11520

Another great spot to check out is Captain Lou’s Fleet, which offers their famous Seal Watching Cruise! Guests will be able to hop on board a boat and will bask in the glory of this seasonal treat! The Seal Watching Cruise lasts about two hours, and just like the Freeport Water Taxi, it’s never guaranteed how many seals you’ll see in the wild because they’re not domesticated animals. For Captain Lou’s fleet, you’ll want to book your cruise fast, since April is the last month to take up this incredible opportunity until the fall!

Here's Why You Should Start Preparing for Prom Now

Besides a milestone birthday, what’s another big life event that many people across the nation celebrate? The answer happens to be prom — but if you’re the parent of a high school senior, have you already started helping your teen plan for the big night? If not, here are some benefits to consider getting an early start on the planning process:


More Options to Choose From

If you’re looking to get the perfect dress or tuxedo for your child, then purchasing or renting them early on will be a huge plus. The reason being is that they not only will they have a vast selection to choose from at a store, but you’ll be able to find their formal wear at a fraction of the cost, especially by purchasing/renting it in advance.

Plus, if there’s something that catches your child’s eye, but it’s not available at the moment, then most stores will have more than enough time to order it before the big night arrives! If you’re looking to score the perfect dress or tux with ease, visit Village Bridal Salon and Boutique — which happens to be owned by us and attached to Dynasty Limousine’s building!

Find Transportation with Ease

Sometimes, it can feel like a struggle trying to obtain transportation for the big night. Whether your teen is looking to take a limo or party bus with their friends, the longer they wait to book their ride, the harder it might be to secure transportation. Of course, you can always drive them there — but if you’re the parent of a teen, then you know that they’d rather walk then be seen being dropped off (we can all relate to this).

Luckily, here at Dynasty, we have a large selection of limos, party buses, and SUVs that will not only transport your child with the utmost safety, but are clean and stylish! However, we do recommend booking their ride in advance, since spots can fill up quickly!

Since 1988, Dynasty Limousine has been the ideal choice for families in and around the Long Island area. Our massive fleet of limousines, party buses and shuttles will make it easy for everyone to travel in style and comfort!

3 Reasons Why You Should Attend a Long Island Ducks Game

Typically, three strikes in baseball is a bad thing — but in this blog, we’ll be giving you three strikes (actually, reasons) why you should attend a Long Island Ducks game this summer. If you haven’t attended one of these local baseball games, you’re definitely missing out on the fun (especially if you’re a baseball fan). If you’ve been contemplating whether or not this should be the year you attend, here are some “strikes” to take into consideration:


1. Local
First and foremost, how many of you love to catch a game at Citi Field or Yankee Stadium, but loathe the commute? Sure, there’s nothing better than seeing one of your favorite teams up close — but when the game is over, and you’re about to leave the parking lot or head to the subway, it can be nothing short of madness.

Luckily, when you attend a Ducks game, the ballpark is located in the heart of Central Islip and is typically minutes away from any home. In fact, even the parking situation at the Bethpage Ballpark is ideal; you’ll be able to shuffle out in no time, once a team wins the game (hopefully, it’s the Ducks)!

2. Inexpensive
Unlike MLB games with hefty price tags, Long Island Ducks games won’t break the bank. Whether you’re looking to catch a game with a friend or a group of people, you won’t be shocked by the grand total when you purchase your tickets. The best part? Various coupons are distributed from local businesses that you can use if you are buying tickets in person or online!

3. Fun
Ducks games are a bundle of fun, no matter who’s in attendance! With their lovable mascot Quacker Jack, you’ll be laughing throughout innings watching Long Island’s favorite cartoon duck walking around the stadium! Additionally, there are also bounce houses, games and so much more to explore when walking around the ballpark. Once you step foot inside, you’ll wish you attended a game much sooner!

Since 1988, Dynasty Limousine has been the ideal choice for families in and around the Long Island area. Our massive fleet of limousines, party buses and shuttles will make it easy for everyone to travel in style and comfort!

Pro Tips on Visiting the Long Island Aquarium

One of the greatest not-so hidden gems on the Island happens to be the Long Island Aquarium of Riverhead. Having opened their doors in 2000 and originally donning the name “Atlantis,” there are a slew of wonderful things to see at this hot spot! Of course, if you’re planning your first trip here or are looking to go back, here are some pro tips to take into consideration:


Go at a Random Time
Sometimes, the early bird doesn’t always catch the worm. Typically, the Long Island Aquarium opens at 10am and closes at 5pm, seven days a week. If you’re attempting to beat the crowds, then it may be wise to go anytime after 12pm. Any hour after lunch is perfect because not only will you be able to take your time walking through the aquarium, but the chances of being able to look at an exhibit without standing behind a crowd will be even greater.

Open Rain or Shine
Say it happens to rain (or snow, because we’re in New York) on the day of your intended visit. You’ll be able to still bask in the excitement of this incredible attraction no matter what (unless they specifically state that they’re closed). However, if you go during the warmer months, you’ll be able to take your time outside by the penguin exhibit, since you won’t have to worry about bundling up!

Bonus: They Host Private Events
If you’ve ever dreamed about having your birthday or a wedding at the aquarium, then we have some good news for you: they host private events! This will not only be the perfect way to have a memorable event, but it’s a great way to change it up from having it at a standard catering hall. If you’re looking for even more fun, then the aquarium can also host corporate events, too (yes, your next company holiday party could be held at this incredible venue)!

Since 1988, Dynasty Limousine has been the ideal choice for families in and around the Long Island area. Our massive fleet of limousines, party buses and shuttles will make it easy for everyone to travel in style and comfort!
