FREEPORT - Freeport’s Nautical Mile is considered by some as a one-stop shop for dates or family fun during the summer. With 15 bars and restaurants, News 12’s Elizabeth Hashagen explores two hot spots along the canal.

Most restaurants along the Mile offer fresh seafood and delicious meals. But some offer outdoor dining and more, such as dancing and even a mechanical bull.

Tropix, which was rebuilt after a fire during Hurricane Sandy, offers palm trees and sand – and yes, that mechanical bull. Owner Mike Dannon says there is a different theme every night of the week at Tropix. The night the bull is featured is Tuesday nights, country night.

And in keeping with the country theme, a little down the road is Otto’s. On alternate Thursday nights, Otto’s features both country and line dancing, as well as salsa dancing.

And something new on the mile is the Saphire Princess, a 100-foot yacht that features dinner cruises along the south shore of Long Island.
