PLAN DATE: SUN / AUG. 11
Who says NYC doesn’t have fantastic tacos? Once a cult-favorite street-side shack, Tacoway Beach now has a full backyard with long lines that are worth the wait. Their fish tacos really shine, with hot, freshly-fried fish of the day nestled into fresh slaw, radishes, and creamy sauce. Sitting under an umbrella with a fresh coconut or watermelon drink, you’ll be reminded of how awesome it is to stay in the city.
This local family-owned yacht company sails all day, and nothing is more perfect than a summer sail at sunset. Bring a bottle of wine and a light jacket to their two hour sunset cruise on Jamaica Bay and Sheepshead Sound, where you’ll watch the sunset over the distant Manhattan skyline and wish it could be summer forever. Last-minute weeknight cruises might be possible, but book as far in advance as you can for the best night ever.
