Vacationing sounds good but,..
Most people think that vacationing is an idea that only happens when the stars line up but we beg to differ. Vacationing happens when you say so or at least when you decide to plan it out.
Outlined underneath are five resource links that can help you achieve your goals of vacationing sooner rather than later.
"It's too expensive!" This is probably the most common reason why vacationing never happens and we agree but before we co-sign that excuse let's just find out how much the flight and hotel will cost.
"I can't afford it!" Got it! You want to go but you don't know how to pay for it. Do a reverse layaway. Put it on a low interest rate credit card then pay it off afterwards. It really is that simple. Here is a link to some really great credit card offers. Now book your trip and enjoy.
You'll think you've entered The Great Gatsby as soon as you set foot on the grounds of this opulent Old Westbury estate! The grand Westbury House, the centerpiece of Old Westbury Gardens, is surrounded by expansive lawns, rose gardens, water fountains, tranquil ponds, and lakes. Start by taking a look around the mansion before taking a stroll through its lovely gardens. Old Westbury Gardens hosts special events and concerts on the main lawn during the warmer months. Dog lovers and owners are drawn to the gardens for their most well-known event, Dog Days, which takes place in the spring and fall and features hikes, themed entertainment, and vendors. Even though the mansion is 112 years old, it still makes for a great location for Instagram photos.

Visit Oheka Castle, located in the town of Huntington on the highest point of Long Island, to step back in time to the Gilded Age on Long Island. Built in 1919, the former estate of businessman and philanthropist Otto Herman Kahn hosted a number of lavish parties during the Roaring Twenties. The name of the castle is derived from the initials of its former owner. Tennis courts, an 18-hole golf course, a sizable greenhouse complex, and a French Formal Garden in front of the house are all on the property. The home changed hands several times after Kahn's passing; the most recent owner, Gary Melius, undertook a thorough renovation and converted the second-largest private residence in America into a five-star hotel. You can take good pictures for your Instagram followers to enjoy while you're taking in the view of this lovely Castle.
One of Long Island's most attractive attractions is the Macari Vineyards, which is located on a picturesque, sparkling waterfront. It's one of the best for getting a bit dizzy as well! Before being harvested for upcoming wines, the grapes are carefully grown on rolling hills. The good stuff is already bottled and waiting for you in the barrel cellar tasting room. The vineyard offers a variety of experiences. Many guests choose a tasting that includes wines, cheeses, and bread served on a lovely patio using charcuterie boards. This winery is the ideal location not only to sample the finest wines but also to snap pictures for your Instagram feed.
When you go to Roosevelt Field, shop 'til you drop. It's not only one of the biggest malls in the US, but also the biggest in the state of New York. Numerous well-known retailers as well as Long Island-only local favorites are housed there. Fashionistas will be drawn to the clothing stores and jewelers. The dining court's wide variety of options will appeal to foodies. The AMC theater is a great place for movie buffs to catch a flick, and tourists looking for a souvenir will love perusing the quirky shops selling "I Survived Long Island" t-shirts and key chains. Roosevelt Field is the best place in New York to go shopping. While you're there, make it one of your most Instagrammable Long Island places, while enjoying everything that this huge Mall has to offer!

Long Beach, which is 50 minutes by train from New York City, is the best destination for a fun day trip with the surf and fine white sand. The 2.2-mile boardwalk can be used for biking or strolling after Superstorm Sandy. The nearly half-mile boardwalk winds through the sloping dunes and is located just beyond the powerful Pacific. Most activities in downtown Long Beach are within a short stroll of it, making it a well-liked destination for both tourists and locals. At the Long Beach Boardwalk, there are countless opportunities to take excellent pictures.
