Long Beach, New York City
(4.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Strikingly different from the city's concrete jungle, Long Beach offers a welcome retreat with its long stretches of soft sand, clean water, and open sky. The beach has a resort destination feel, with a long bamboo boardwalk perfect for a long run, a separate bicycle lane, and plenty of benches. Apartment buildings line the back of the beach, but a handful of nearby food trucks keep you nourished. A swimming area is roped off, and lifeguards patrol the beach. Onsite amenities include bike rental and beach volleyball courts. Put Long Beach into our New York City itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
