Tours in Melville


Select Local Merchants

Groups of tourists walk past the current dwelling places of some of the area’s notable residents, such as Addison Cairns Mizner, Paul Ilyinsky, and Henry Morrison Flagler. Unlike the case with traditional celebrity-sighting tours, however, all of these men died decades ago. Their spooky hauntings frame the path of Ghosts of Palm Beach’s walking tours, during which knowledgeable guides share local folklore and paranormal encounters. Stops can include everything from Palm Beach Town Hall to high-fashion shops such as Gucci, Chanel, and Saks Fifth Avenue, where the ghosts still try to buy handbags for a dollar and two bits.

Long Island Fear Fest elicits screams with spooky rides and thrills orchestrated by Mr. Slim Chance II and his demented associates. Flashing lights and booming sounds re-create an old-fashioned carnival atmosphere as visitors explore the Chamber of Horrors Haunted House⎯a reworked haunted house that immerses horror lovers in a tortuous cavern of frights filled with Slim and his family of freaks' prized possessions and collection of vintage parking tickets. After a frightful house visit, fest-fiends can hop on the Montauk Monster Haunted Hayride and travel into Long Island’s checkered history, wheeling past terrifying tableaus and paparazzi disguised as hay bales.

Mike Tarascio's life changed forever in 1981 when a business partner offered him a ride to a conference in New Jersey—not in a town car or on a tandem bicycle, but in a small private airplane. The very next year, Mike bought an airplane of his own and founded the business that would eventually become Ventura Aviation. Today, he, his wife, and their sons operate their business out of Republic Airport, where they use their fleet of Learjets, Piper Warriors, and a helicopter to train a new generation of skyborne adventurers. Their goal is to introduce clients to the limitless lifestyle and freedom that comes with personal aviation, and inspire others to make the life-changing decision to learn to fly.
