Checking Out of the City

The summer is here and the New Yorkers are Not!   The NY mornings and evenings are magical, but the days are anything but!  Once the clock strikes noon, be out or be weary.  Don’t let the sticky air trap you in or the heat from the sidewalks scare you from getting to your car or train, don’t make the mistake of leaving too early and getting caught in the tailgate rush out of town, and don’t head back too late and catch the exhausted beach loving city slicker’s bumper push back to the city.  If you time it JUST right, my friends, the perfect weekend is ahead!

I’ve made my list!!  I’m Checking Out but hopefully Checking In, summer weekend bucket list.

East Coast Beach

I am a California beach girl at heart, but there is something unique and tranquil about the east coast beaches.  The dunes, the wild grass, the picket fences, the warmer water, and lets not forget those beaches that can only be reached by ferry!  Who wants to join me?  Check me in, Please!

Cape May, NJ

Cape May, a gem at the bottom of New Jersey.  Only a three hour drive from the city to the Painted Ladies!  Can’t pass up award winning beaches, a quaint fishing harbor and a possible whale spotting!  We went last year and loved it.  Check me in again, Please!

Acadia National Park, Maine

How I long for a camping trip…with a lodge!   The smell of the pine trees, the sound of a rushing river with endless streams, hikes to hill tops with beautiful views of God’s country, and waking up to the sound of chattering birds and restless animals outside your window.  Does it get better, I ask?  Check me in, Please!

Block Island, Rhode Island

Block Island is a real get away only a few hours outside the city.  First by car, then by boat and you’re there!  This place is only accessible seasonal, so it has that true vacation feel, if only for a couple of days.  Check me in, Please!

This may be a little far for a weekend getaway, but wherever it is please, please check me in!

Where do you hope to check in this summer?  I would love to hear about it!

Until next ride,

Amy
