Syosset is an excellent town to grow up in. The schools are excellent and well ranked. Overall the town has a great influx of people who come for its admired factors. The town has a wide range of restaurants to eat at, however after a while they can grow tiresome. Activities to do in town are extremely limited, for example going to the movies requires at least a fifteen minute drive. However, there are opportunities for young kids with many fun and exciting places, such as bounce trampoline sports and bowling alleys.
