Wonder if you can help, I am a first time poster to this forum.
First off some background info.
The first time we arrived in New York City was at the end of November beginning of December 2001. My husband booked 5 nights in NYC & 5 nights in Las Vegas for my 50th Birthday! We were a wee bit nervous flying over to NYC, it was so soon after 9/11 and there were many empty seats on board. It turned out to be one of the best holidays of our lives!
I absolutely loved NYC, loved Vegas as well! But to me NYC was special and so were the people. NYC reminded me of our City back home (Liverpool, England) but on a grander scale! I have so many good memories of that time. We took lots of warm clothing to wear, I couldn’t believe the weather at the beginning of December we were strolling around Central Park in jeans and tea shirts it was so warm!
A couple of days before we left for Vegas my husband bought me a lovely bracelet for my birthday from a Jeweller’s called Martinique’s. I think it was on 7th Avenue in the Times Square area, wonder if it’s still there!
But I digress too much, my husband & I are approaching another mile stone in our lives we will be 40 years married this September (I still adore him!) and we were thinking we would like to return to New York City for 5 nights in September, and then maybe chilling out with a 9 or 10 days beach holiday.
Are there any nice beaches that aren’t too far from New York? And if not we don’t mind hopping on a plane (not too long a flight though!) Where do New Yorkers go to in America for their beach holidays? We aim to try and cram in all the sights that we missed on our first trip to NYC so we would be looking to chill at a nice beach front location somewhere laid back amongst nice people.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated, thank you for taking the time & the trouble to read this post!
