How to Enjoy a Quick Stop in Long Beach, NY

Just 25 miles from New York City lies a famous beach getaway that brings together a sophisticated Hamptons-like vibe, the energy of the Big Apple and the beauty of a hidden seaside town. Come to Long Beach, NY, and see for yourself.

 

But what if you don’t have a weekend or more to spare? Not to worry. The City by the Sea has plenty to offer even if you’re here for only a couple of hours!

 

Food and Drinks

Whether you arrive by car or rail, your first stop should be the Allegria Hotel. During summer, our rooftop lounge, Jack’s On The Rocks, is a sought-after attraction as we’re the only hotel on Long Beach’s boardwalk. From our terrace, you can admire the stunning views while sipping a cocktail or two. If you’d rather have a warm drink during the colder months, our hotel serves your favorite Starbucks drinks - have a coffee to go and continue exploring!

 

The Atlantica Restaurant is open year-round and serves a myriad of specialty dishes that highlight the local cuisine and produce. No more wandering around to look for a place to eat and drink - the Allegria is the only stop you need to make.  

 

Sights

The No. 1 attraction will always be the iconic Long Beach boardwalk. Measuring 2 miles, runners, cyclists and pedestrians share the road that follows the most breathtaking views of the beach and the Atlantic Ocean.

 

If you’re up for some history, check out the Red Brick Street District to get a look at how the city looked a long time ago. Or better yet, read our Tour of Long Beach’s History and Architecture.

 

Shopping

Long Beach’s shopping district is located between Park Avenue and Beech Street. You’ll find plenty of choices if you’re looking for a new outfit, sports apparel, beverages or quirky knick-knacks.
