Definitive Proof There's No Better Place Than Summer On Long Island

Sweet, sweet Long Island. Enjoy some open air this summer. Thanks to the Chevy Trax's available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi, you'll never get lost on the road.

1. First of all, let's talk beaches: The North Shore is rocky as heck, but most of the beaches are perfectly secluded, which makes for an excellent adventure...

2. ...and the South Shore? Ugh, the South Shore has some of the softest sand and prettiest views.

From Long Beach to Jones Beach to Westhampton Dunes, there are literally miles and miles of things to discover on the beaches.

3. Not to mention the best boardwalks to hang out on.

There are free summer concerts at the Jones Beach Bandshell, and fun stuff is always happening in Long Beach (which is basically the best way to spend a hot July night).

5. But maybe Montauk is more your speed?

Pack up the car and spend a weekend taking in everything Montauk has to offer: Hike at Camp Hero, catch some waves at Ditch Plains, see a concert at The Surf Lodge, and enjoy a cold one at Montauk Brewing Company's tap room.

6. Long Island has farms FULL of sunflowers and the memory-inducing smell of honeysuckle late at night.

Take it all in on Sound Avenue on the North Fork! You won't find that stuff in the city.

7. Um, also since it's, ya know, an island, it's pretty obvious that the seafood will always be fresh and amazing.

From The Shack on the side of the road in Centerport to The Steamroom in Port Jeff, you can't go wrong with mussels, clams, or, of course, lobster caught earlier that day.

8. One of the best things is pulling over on the side of the road to pick up a fresh pie or some fruit...

Your stomach will thank you.

10. Adventureland finally opens for the season!

It'll get you riled up when you're looking for a little fun on a hot summer day. Fun fact: That movie was based on our little amusement park.

11. The North Fork has some of the best wineries in the country, and they're in full swing.

Tastings are usually offered daily, and you can even bring your own picnic lunches.

13. ...and speaking of Ducks, you can always see some fireworks or cheer for the home team at a minor league baseball game.

Quack! Quack!
