You’ve planned your visit to Long Beach, NY, your calendar is marked and your bags are ready. After checking in to your room at Allegria Hotel, you might be wondering where to head next. Read on to find out the top recommendations from those who really know what they’re talking about: the locals.
The No. 1 attraction in The City by the Sea is, of course, the ocean. And we’re lucky enough to have some pretty fantastic waves, which translates to the most beloved local activity: surfing. We’ve covered Top Surfing Spots on Long Island and a guide on Everything You Need to Know about Surfing in Long Beach.
Don’t know how to surf? No problem! Skudin Surf School offers surfing classes perfect for beginners of all ages.
No visit to Long Beach, NY, is complete without indulging in some fresh local produce and seafood. The Atlantica Restaurant should be your first stop - we’re the only hotel on Long Beach’s boardwalk. If you’re up for exploring, the city’s main arteries - Park Avenue and Beech Street - are home to other great seafood restaurants with a more casual atmosphere. We suggest trying: Whales Tale Fish House and Burger Joint, WildFeast, or the gourmet food truck Odie’s Ocean Food Grill.
Families may want to take a break from the sand once in a while. The Allegria is located just one block from the Magnolia Boulevard playground - a small haven for the kiddies. If you’d like to try other parks, check out our post on Free Things to Do in Long Beach, NY.
Night owls out there might want to head to Long Beach’s West End to hop in and out of the various bars along West Beech St. But if great views and sophisticated cocktails is what you’re after, L’Onda Lounge serves original drinks and good selection of cheese, charcuterie and seafood to munch on.
These are just some of our top recommendations. Browse through our blog to find out what else to do and see during your next trip to Long Beach, NY. There’s always something happening here!
