If you want to feel like you are on a tropical getaway head to Rockaway Beach. Rockaway Beach has been in a total transformation over the past few years; it has now become the destination for hipsters and surfers alike. I love heading to the Rockaways for some sand, sun, and drinks. It's like a mini-getaway without having to go far.

PRO-TIP: Get off at Beach 98 easy access to Playland Motel, the broadwalk and Rockaway Surf Club.

Playland Motel:
97-20 Rockaway Beach Boulevard

Playland Motel has eats and drinks. If you plan on spending all day out at Rockaway Beach, head to Playland Motel for breakfast. Fuel up on some breakfast tacos before hitting the shore. Or wind down your day with some cocktails and nachoes in the beach vibe back patio.

Looking to grab some lunch, snacks, and booze? Beach 98 has everything you could ask for. This isn't your typical boardwalk food -- they have everything from BBQ food to sea food to smoothies. Forgot something at home? Don't worry there's a surf shop too. Plus they have live music on Saturday nights so chill out boardwalk style. 

Rippers
Boardwalk & Beach 86th St

Want more traditional broadwalk food? Burgers, hot dogs, etc. Head down to Beach 86 to Rippers. They too have booze...obv important trend in this post.

Rockaway Beach Surf Club is one of my favorite ways to end a day at Rockaway Beach. The line is always long for tacos (totally worth the wait) but the drinks are always cold and refreshing. Rockaway Beach Surf Club totally transports me to California or even Hawaii, with the backyard patio and hanging surfboards. Chill out in the backyard patio or if you had enough sun hangout inside...whichever you choose you can't go wrong!
