Heckscher State Park, just across the bay on Long Island, boasts an abundance of picnic grounds where families can enjoy some time hanging out while spotting birds and whitetail deer.

Living it Up
Although it's a small village, Cherry Grove has several lively venues that will get you out of your vacation rental. Cherry's On The Bay is a place to interact with locals and enjoy great dinner and cocktails. Apart from a lineup of weekday shows such as Monday's Dining with the Divas and Tuesday's Bingo with Boudoir, weekends are time to party. On Fridays and Saturdays, dance to great music by DJs Tanco, Susan Levine, Tommy Bruno, and Richard Luchese.
Another fun option is the Island Breeze, yet another popular local hangout, and enjoy great entertainment after dinner. Catch weekly entertainment programs such as Burlesque and TGIFunk. If you're looking to keep the groove going, move your bodies to fun music mixes by DJs Mo Faux and Chauncey. Beyond the action, there's also a great menu of food and drinks.
Excursions by the Sea
Adventurers can discover some breathtaking attractions in the Cherry Grove area. When the weather permits, visit the Sunken Forest in Sailor's Haven. This holly forest got its name due to the towering dunes that separate it from the beach. When strolling within the trees, you experience the illusion that you're below sea level. A walk through this rare forest brings you close to unique flora and fauna. Capture these moments with a photo or two.
The Fire Island Lighthouse is one of the Great South Bay's most well-known landmarks. Originally constructed in 1826, it served as a navigation beacon until 1974. Today, it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors to the lighthouse can learn more about the history of the park, visit the keeper's quarters, and see artifacts dating back to the 19th century.
Celebrating a Unique History
Cherry Grove has long been known as a vacation destination popular with the LGBT community, and many of its festivals and community events reflect this history. The Performance Festival is a yearly summer event celebrating Fire Island's LGBT residents. It brings together celebrated artists and dancers to nurture community connections and harmony.
Another must-attend event in Cherry Grove is The Invasion, which commemorates the first time Cherry Grove's gay culture "invaded" the more traditional town of Fire Island Pines back in the 1970s. Since then, the event has grown to become New York's largest drag parade. Wearing colorful, eye-catching, and often amusing attire, local participants gather at the docks as onlookers cheer them on.
