One thing i love about summer in The City, is you can actually ride the subway all the way to the beach! About an hour ride with the A-train and Rockaway beach is waiting for you. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a beautiful beach but it is perfect if you need to escape the city for a day or a couple of hours. Rockaway has undergone a bit of a revival as of late, these days is not only known for it’s surfers, it’s also known for it’s tacos! So don’t miss the hip taco shack Rockaway Taco. If you do decide, you like it so much you want to spend the night even, Playland Motel recently opened which is a small hipster motel with a few very cool rooms.
