Escape the City: Winter Getaway in Long Beach

If you’re looking for a weekend away to recharge, look no further than Long Beach. The small beach community on Long Island is an excellent getaway from work stress and winter blues, with a wide-open horizon over the sea and a mix of activities for your enjoyment.

Go ahead and escape the city for a weekend – here’s a look at what to do during your weekend getaway to Long Beach.

Treat yourself to a spa day

Give yourself some rest and relaxation with a massage or facial. JJ Foot Spa, Beyond Zen Massage, Joseph Christopher For Beauty and Wellness, and Healing Oasis are all located on nearby Park Avenue.

Walk the boardwalk

Take a refreshing walk on the boardwalk – weather permitting – to get some sun and take in views of the Atlantic Ocean. Watch seasoned surfers make the most of the winter swells and look out to the horizon – something you miss out on in the city.

Weekend Brunch at Atlantica

Atlantica at Allegria Hotel serves up the perfect brunch with excellent ocean views, favored by locals and visitors. The a la carte menu is ideal for getting your sweet and savory breakfast fix. Brunch is served 11 am to 3 pm weekends.

Browse the shops on Park Avenue

While you can’t expect the selection of Manhattan, Park Avenue is dotted with jewelry boutiques, home goods stores and surf and sport shops with great deals.

If you’re looking for an apparel shopping therapy session, Roosevelt Field Mall is just a 30-minute drive from Long Beach. Located in Garden City, the mall is one of the largest in the United States and has an Apple Store, as well as Neiman Marcus and a Bloomingdale’s.

Get creative at Earth Arts of Long Beach

This shop located just five blocks from Allegria Hotel offers pottery for sale, which you can paint right there in-house, walk-ins welcome. The local business also hosts pottery and paint nights, where you can cut loose and work on your project with others. Visit their website for upcoming events.

Ice skate at the Long Beach Ice Arena

Get active with indoor ice skating in Long Beach! Free skate during public sessions at the Long Beach Ice Arena, with half of the rink open to the public.
