    I've heard mixed messages about Fire Island, I was wondering if anyone who has been there could tell me if it would be a good idea to go there for the forth?

    I'm looking for a beach, a place to lay out, and be able to have a couple beers. Is Fire Island a match?

    Oh, and if/what parts are gay friendly. icon_cool.gif

    Thanks!

    My pick is Provincetown, MA over the 4th of July. It is packed with fun guys, everyone is in a good mood, and to say the town is gay friendly is an understatment. Plus, you don't need a car, the whole village is walkable...and you can kayak, ride bikes, etc. if bars and partying aren't your scene.

    Of all the yrs I've lived in NY I've yet to make it to FI. I'm not a big sun person and I don't swim. What else is there to do there?

    It's a beautiful island. You can enjoy Fire Island any way you want to. Of cource, the most visible impression are the bars and dance clubs..high tea and low tea,......which I still don't understand. But there are scores of other men who don't do the party scene and enjoy good friends, BBQ's and having dinner.

    The beaches are fine....lot's of eye candy but go to sleep if you feel like it.

    People are freindly and relaxed, especially the ones who own a house there.

    I just started to go there, and rented a share of a house. I had avoided Fire Island in the past, because I thought, like a lot of people, that it was a total gay scene and I wasn't into it. But the oportunity came, and I took it. I don't regret it.

    Things are a bit expensive at the supermarket. But if you want to cook dinner for a group of freinds, they have everything.

    There are no cars. It's peaceful and quiet.

    Screw the holier than thou guys who proudly proclaim they are not into "the scene" They don't know what they are missing.

    Chery Grove and The Pines are the gayest......the Grove seems to have more lesbians.

    One of the nicest things I remember is feeling totally safe, no matter what time of night I was walking around.

    Go and have a good time........revel in being part of a "community of freinds and supporters" and non judgemental people.
