Candle Making Class
Travel Information

Since many of the people attending our classes come from outside the New York Metro area, our classes are usually scheduled over a single weekend for your convenience. We have assembled the following information for your convenience, however we do not endorse any of the companies linked to. Please book any flights and hotels through your preferred travel agent or discount travel service.

Important Please Note: Do not make travel plans until you have received a confirmation from us that a space has been reserved in the class. Classes are limited in size and space in them is by reservation only. If you show up without a reservation and the class is full, you will not be able to attend.

Air Travel

Kennedy Airport - NYC, approximately 15 miles

Local Travel

Long Island has minimal public transportation so you should expect to either rent a car, or take taxi cabs if you are staying on Long Island. Those who choose to stay in Manhattan may take the Long Island Railroad from Penn Station. We are located 1/4 mile from the East Williston station on the Oyster Bay Line. Click here for more information on public transportation in our area.

This link will provide a street map for those driving (note that our location is slightly east of the red star):

Hotels

Being in a major metropolitan area, there are many hotels to choose from ranging from moderately expensive to outrageously expensive. We have had favorable feedback from visitors about the following:

Red Roof Inn - Westbury, N. Y. Just a few miles away from us. Conveniently located near great shopping and restaurants. Most of our visitors stay here.

Howard Johnsons - Westbury, N. Y. We have had some favorable comments about this hotel as well, however it is less conveniently located.

Attractions

If you would like to extend your stay, our area offers many things to do including beaches, museums, theatre, sporting events, and much more. Some of our favorites:

Cradle Of Aviation Museum - Recently remodeled, this is a must see for any history or aviation buffs.

Garvies Point Museum and Preserve - Museum includes regional geology and local Native American archaeology. 62-acre preserve, 5 mi of trails off Hempstead harbor.

Old Bethpage Village Restoration - A living history museum depicting farm and town life on LI in the mid-19th century, with over 55 historic structures, staffed by costumed guides and craftspersons.

Sagamore Hill National Historic Site - Home of President Theodore Roosevelt, 1885-1919. Period furnishings.

Westbury Music Fair - A theatre in the round offering a variety of performances from comedians, plays, top name bands and singers, classic rock act, oldies, ballet and much more. Click here for a schedule.

Those are just some of our picks. Many more can be found on the NY tourism web site.

Manhattan

We are just a short hop from New York City so some visitors like to visit or stay in Manhattan while they are here. The possibilities for places to stay or visit there are endless, so we are just including this link to NYC tourism information for those who would like to explore this possibility further.
