It's "All About That Beach" This Summer

Labor Day weekend is just a few weeks away but there’s still enough time to make the remaining days – move over, Meghan Trainor – “All About that Beach.”

There are so many stunning shores to explore in our area! It’s no surprise that Jones Beach State Park is one of New York’s most popular beaches. You can swim in the Atlantic Ocean, walk or run along the boardwalk, go fishing, have a picnic, and so much more.

Past Jones Beach in Long Island is Robert Moses State Park where five miles of gorgeous sand and ocean breezes beckon beach-goers to relax, relax, relax.

Popularized by the popular Ramones’ song, Rockaway Beach in Queens features a beautiful beach, playgrounds and more. The city did a great job of reviving the beach following Hurricane Sandy.

The Coney Island experience for many embodies not just this Brooklyn beach but also tons of thrills on rides and attractions in the amusement area (home of the Cyclone rollercoaster), and a meal at the original Nathan’s.

Don’t forget a day-trip to the tony Hamptons, car-free Fire Island or breathtaking Montauk. They are iconic New York!

We hope you consider staying with us – your conveniently situated home base as you explore many of these amazing beaches! Be sure to visit our hotel concierge who can advise you on the best way to reach your beach destination via subway, the Long Island Railroad or car.
