Escape for Summer

Sure, summer has so far been mostly rainy and cold. But eventually summer will arrive, and that means hitting the beach. So just in case you want a little bit more sand than Newport Beach offers, here are a few getaway special deals:

NJ Transit Beach Special
Hoboken Now points out a NJ Transit discount on beach tags along the NJ Coastline. Round trip fares include beach passes for several destinations along the route with savings up to $6.50.

Atlantic City Express
The brand new ACES train service, an express train from New York / Newark Penn Station to Atlantic City, is offering a short time discounted fare of $29 for those who want to gamble. The train has bar service and runs Friday through Sunday.

Sandy Hook, by Boat
If you rather cruise your way to the beach, SeaStreak offers ferry service to Sandy Hook from Manhattan seven days a week. Twice daily service provides a 30 minute jaunt to a dock in the highlands, includes a short shuttle service, and admission to the beach.

Northeast Corridor
Meanwhile, Amtrak is running a 25 percent discount on Northeast Corridor rail service. So if the beach isn’t your thing, consider some of the nation’s great historical cities like Boston, Philadelphia or Washington D.C.
