A Day by the Sea in Long Beach

Long Beach is one of the only two cities on Long Island. This "the city by the sea" is a picturesque waterfront community with over three miles of beaches, an iconic boardwalk featuring an Instagram-worthy mural, fine dining, lively bars, and endless activities.

Growing up in Long Beach, DJ Chef, a nationally recognized culinary entertainer, loves his Long Island bagels, beaches and pizza. Long Beach is the ultimate destination for visitors and locals alike. 


DJ Chef always has Long Beach on his mind and sand in his shoes. Long Beach has several beaches to dip your toes in including Long Beach & Ocean Beach Park. Grab a slice at East End Pizza and stroll along the boardwalk or grab a Long Beach famous bagel (a DJ Chef favorite).

Grab a pint at Bright Eye Beer Co., Long Beach's first craft brewery that is licensed as both a microbrewery and a farm brewery. This taproom boasts refreshing brews - and feel free to bring your own lunch! After, take a stroll down the boardwalk for an afternoon by the water including surf lessons.

Finally, make it a weekend getaway by staying on Long Island's only oceanfront hotel, the Allegria Hotel, with a seasonal rooftop pool, or unwind at the Long Beah Hotel, just a few doors down. Then, watch the sunset for breathtaking views and the beginning of the vibrant nightlife.
