Our highly anticipated summer season is well underway and the time is ripe to head over the bridge to experience a day in Long Beach. There’s nothing better than salty air and beachy hair. One of my favorite LI destinations during the summer months, Long beach is the perfect beachy town to indulge in your next adventure. Here are some of my favorite spots to hit when you make it to the City by the Sea. Here’s to making memories:)
Located at Riverside Boulevard and the beach and open seven days a week (weather permitting), “The Shoregasboard,” is the perfect and convinient stop for local food on your way to the beach. With a variety of local food vendors, it’s perfect for fueling up for a beach day.
For local, natural flavors, no need to look any further. You’ll find The Long Beach Farmers’ Market at Kennedy Plaza robust with certified organic vegetables, herbs, and greens. They also offer Long Island corn, heirloom tomatoes, potatoes, squash and onions, fresh fruits and juices, cheese, milk, beer, fresh pasta, pickles, smoked pork, soaps and preserves, shellfish and regional fish, baked goods, gluten free breads, cakes and cookies, vegan Treats, GF cookies, ice cream and more. Stop by and pick up the ingredients for your perfect #summer recipe.
Wind in your hair, salt in the air… What’s better than a bike ride on the boardwalk–nothing! Now it’s easier than ever to experience the boardwalk on bicycle.

It’s the perfect addition to the new and beautiful boardwalk that offers an escape from the daily grind.

And of course, the beach…. How can you let summer go by and not spend some time at the ocean. Summer is short, visit your happy place and let the sea revive your soul. B.E.A.C.H – Best, Escape, Anyone, Can, Have…
