Long Beach—a beach getaway, just one hour from NYC

Only an hour from New York, and Long Beach vacation rentals are the perfect base for a relaxed family-friendly vacation or even just a short weekend getaway. Originally conceived in the early 1900s by a New York property developer, Long Beach has been the favorite playground for many famous celebrities including Mae West, Humphrey Bogart. Although Long Beach declined in popularity for a while, it has recently undergone a renaissance, with a newly rebuilt boardwalk, and the quiet beach has once more become a hugely popular family destination.

Things to do

More to Long Beach than meets the eye

Most visitors come to Long Beach for day trips to the beach, but with great Long Beach vacation rentals available, you have the perfect excuse to stay longer and spend a fun-filled vacation with friends and family. The beach is of course the main attraction here, but there’s much more to see. The Long Beach Historical Museum offers a glimpse into the fascinating past of Long Beach and for those interested in architecture, a stroll around the beach neighborhoods will reveal some well-preserved ocean-front houses from the town’s heyday in the early part of the 20th century.

Activities

Long Beach—it’s all in the name!

With 3.5 miles of soft sand and a great choice of family-friendly Long Beach vacation rentals, there are many opportunities for family fun by the ocean. The renovated boardwalk is the perfect place for an ocean side bike ride, to roller-skate or simply take an evening stroll and enjoy the view. The beach plays host to boogie-boarders, surfers, boaters, swimmers, and sunbathers. Need a bite to eat?? Grab something to eat at one of the great food outlets on the boardwalk or visit one of the superb restaurants in town.

Weather

A relaxing summer retreat in Long Beach

Long Beach has a moderate humid subtropical climate with hot summers and cool winters and is one of the northernmost locations of the zone. Fall and winter tend to be rainy and there is snowfall each winter. Its climate is tempered by the Atlantic Ocean and in 2012, the town was struck hard by Hurricane Sandy, which caused widespread destruction. However, in response, the town has made a triumphant recovery, with the reconstructed boardwalk attracting many visitors wishing for a quiet and relaxing retreat or a family-friendly vacation.

Natural features

Long Beach—a protective barrier island

The city of Long Beach is situated on a barrier island off the New Jersey coast. As such, it bore the brunt of Hurricane Sandy in 2012, protecting the towns of Long Island New Jersey. It is an attractive city with many beautiful old beach-front houses from the early 1900s. At the end of the subtropical climate zone, it allows for the growth of warmer climate plants such as mimosa, crape myrtle and magnolia, usually only found further south. The first inhabitants of the island were the Rockaway Indians who sold it to Dutch colonists in 1643.
