Memorial Day to Labor Day, this place is riddled with bodies. Traffic slows to standstills and restaurants, club, parks fill to the brim.
Unique Suggestions: To deal.....drive out east Saturday morning before 7 am. And for the ride back to NYC drive home real late Sunday night. If work allows try the weekdays....so much less humans then.
Jones Beach, way too overated
Yeah Jones beach may be one of the most visited beach in the world, it sucks. You are packed up so closely next to another group. Real estate is limited on a hot summer day. Go east to less populated beaches.
Unique Suggestions: Stay on the train to eastern LI beaches such as Smith Point or Robert Moses
Summer in the beach cannot be complete without the ever present and watchful lifeguards.
Thanks to them for keeping us safe:)
