The weekend is over and I feel pleasantly tired. After all the sun and drinking, you know :)
Being a typical New Yorker, I love to get away from the city on the weekends, especially in the summer. We just can't wait to pack our beach bags, change into swimsuits, and spend the whole day in them.
The closest getaway place from the city is Long Island. And no, I am not going to talk about the Hamptons, will save it for another time:).
I'll share the quickest and easiest way to get away for the most of us, mere mortals. Take the LIRR from the Penn Station to Long Beach, and in less than an hour, you're at one of the nicest beaches on the East Coast. Really, besides the Hamptons and Fire Island, this is my favorite beach in NY. It's not as crowded as other beaches on Long Island and has a lot of nice places to hang out, eat and drink. Very important to me :)
So next time, you want to leave your beloved city for a day, just take the train (please don't drive to avoid sitting in traffic for hours) to Long Beach, put your sexy on, and have some sun/fun. You desperately need it after spending the whole week in the office.
Here are some shots from my weekend. See ya all there next weekend:)
P.S. Don't worry about finding it once you arrive. Just follow the crowd (which is the whole train) and in less than 10 min walk, you are right there!!
