What’s summer without a day at the beach? Grab your towel and sunblock and head east to the ten-mile stretch of sand along the Atlantic Ocean, at Jones Beach in Long Island. For decades, New Yorkers have been coming out in droves, thanks to the development of the park by Robert Moses since 1929, to splash in the waves, picnic with friends, catch a game of volleyball or sprawl out to soak up the sun. On weekends especially the quiet breeze and soothing sounds of crashing waves mix with happy crowds who frolic and play, while the soft colors of sea and sand are brightened by endless umbrellas and blankets. Keep your eyes peeled and you might even see a yellow polka-dot bikini or two!
