Bay Shore Reviews

30 reviews
All Categories
I've lived in Bay Shore my entire life and I can easily say that my experience here is one to remember. Living within 10 minutes of the Ocean beaches allowed me to always have something to do during hot summer days. The people of Bay Shore are all wonderful as well, you could walk down the street and everyone seems to know each other giving it a small town vibe without it actually being a small town. I've met some of the most important people in my life in this town who have helped me through some pretty tough times. I fully expect to come back and give my children the same experience that I had here in Bay Shore.
Review Bay Shore
Bay Shore is a tranquil town, easy to navigate and family friendly. There is always something to do especially at night. Multiple parks and entertainment centers. Night life is fun and people is respectful.
Bay Shore is a small, quaint town which has everything you need including super markets and entertainment, but if you can't find it you can always go to a town within 20-30 minutes from the town.
