People have been going to Hicks Nurseries on Long Island for 160 years.  It is not just a place to purchase plants.  It is a destination for all seasons.  There are many events depending on the time of year.  October is “Otto The Ghost ” time at Hicks. Even with Covid, it is a must visit.  Without the hayrides and petting zoo, things are much more low key this year. Nevertheless, with its easy accessibility,  it is still an enjoyable place for all, including children and/or grandchildren.


The paved parking lot has six handicapped spaces just outside the main entrance, which has automatic, sliding glass doors. The concrete or smooth brick aisles are wide enough to maneuver easily while enjoying the gorgeous florals.  Although we were here to visit “Otto” we couldn’t ignore the beautiful Christmas displays already set up. You have to walk through Christmas to get to Otto. Otto is always fun, and a great place for photos.


The cafe, which we have enjoyed in the past, is not open, except for the fabulous pies that are made on premises and offered for “take-home.” Of course, we had to get one.


Multi-stall, handicapped accessible restrooms are located next to the café. There is a large, handicapped stall, wheelchair-sinks and a baby-changing station.


In addition to plants and garden supplies, Hicks sells  gift items, everything for Christmas, and garden furniture. Right now they are selling masks and hand-sanitizers as well.


We were there during the week, so it was very easy to keep a good distance from the handful of people that were there. Signs about keeping safe are clearly visible and hand-sanitizer is readily available to use.


We love Otto and Hicks and will keep coming back for more memories.


As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, www.hicksnurseries.com, to “know before you go.”
