Feeling the constraints of the city? It's time for an escape. Breathe in the fresh air off the Atlantic Ocean in Long Beach, just a 50-minute train ride from Manhattan. Here are some tips on how to plan a weekend of rest and relaxation.
This is the first step to making your weekend trip a reality. Book a room at Allegria Hotel, located right on the beach. Floor-to-ceiling windows look out to the stunning Atlantic ocean, and an onsite Starbucks, restaurant and lounge ensures that everything you need is just steps away.
It's important to unplug and let yourself relax while you're away from the demands of the city. Take full advantage of Long Beach! A beach pass is included for guests at Allegria Hotel - we'll also supply the beach chair and towel.
If it's the off-season or the weather isn't ideal for a beach day, find a different way to relax. Here's a list of local spas and massage parlors:
