If you can’t make it out the Hamptons and still want to get some Vitamin D straight from the source, Rockaway Beach makes for a perfect day trip and is only a scenic subway or bus ride away.

With a younger crowd than Jones Beach, a great mix of foodie-favorite-popups (Rockaway Tacos, Caracas, etc) and the occasional beauty shop, it’s no wonder the beach is getting more and more popular than ever before.

Before you go be sure to check out our friend OfAKind’s Rockaway Guide and make sure you have applied (and reapplied) enough SPF.
