Life in the city can make you long for a few things, namely a view that isn't obstructed by buildings. A weekend getaway is the perfect remedy, but you want to make sure your escape is more restorative than it is exhausting.
That's why a staycation in nearby Long Beach is ideal for New Yorkers. It's located less than an hour from Penn Station by train, making it the perfect escape that will leave you refreshed on your return. Here's why.
Take in a view void of billboards, advertisements, cars and blinking lights and behold the Atlantic Ocean. It'll clear your mind and soften your gaze. If you stay with us at Allegria Hotel, you can enjoy floor-to-ceiling windows for epic views of the Atlantic, which you can take in while still in your pajamas.
If you feel like venturing out for exciting food and a lively nightlife, Long Beach has plenty of places for you to choose. There are great brunch options; you'll want to try the wood-fired pizza from Sorrento's (255 W. Park Ave.); and live your best life with an opulent milkshake from Diner by the Sea (260 E. Park Ave.).
There's also inventive local fare from places within walking distance from the beach, like The Atlantica (at Allegria Hotel), JJ Coopers (124 W. Park Ave.), and LB Social (62 W. Park Ave.).
Want to cut loose LB-style? Dive bars are a-plenty in the West End at places like Shine's (55 California St.), which has been around for over a century. Classy cocktails and excellent wine are available at L'Onda Lounge (at Allegria Hotel).
Pack your bag and take a quick train ride to Long Beach, a world away from Manhattan yet under an hour from Penn Station. With your own "staycation" you focus on the important things, like relaxing and having a good time.
