I know how the saying goes, west coast best coast right? WRONG- In my humble opinion of course. 😉
Here are the top 10 things to do when you find yourself East coast chillin’ for the summer…
1. MISQUAMICUT BEACH!
The coolest little one lane beach town in the smallest state in the U.S., Misquamicat Beach, Westerly, RI! PADDY’S beach bar is where it’s at here! You walk up barefoot in your bathing suit to the bar and you most definitely need to order yourself a shark tank and some clam fritters! 👅 (*MOUTH WATERS*)
2. CONEY ISLAND!
Ride the wonder wheel at Coney Island in Brooklyn, NY not once, but twice. Eat an original NATHAN’s famous hot dog and crinkle fries and hang with the old school carnies!
3. CAPE COD!
Here’s your go to for the BEST DAMN lobster rolls you have ever had! Captain Frosty’s is #1, but let’s be real. You really can’t go wrong with any seafood at the Cape.
4. YANKEES GAME!
Of course you have to go to a Yanks game! Yeah the beers are $14 dollars, but seeing the 27 champion World Series banners is pretty badass. Not to mention, there’s always the celebs that go to games you can spot on the jumbo-tron. If you’re on a budget, bleacher seats are the best to catch a home run and make rowdy friends!
5. WASHINGTON D.C.!
Check out the Lincoln Memorial, White House and countless museums. It’s okay to look for Olivia Pope on Scandal, but make sure you stop by the famous GEORGETOWN CUPCAKES while mingling with famous congressman and senators.
6. VIRGINIA BEACH!
Known for its beautiful bike boardwalk, salt water taffy and in late August, Virginia Beach even hosts the East Coast Surfing Championships. Yeah, the waves are small, but there are still plenty of babes and booze so you know we love it.
Head to the horse track and play the ponies in Saratoga, NY. Opening day was Friday July 24th and they allow you to bring in your own coolers for all day tailgating! (*Large fancy hat not required, but hey if you’re feeling festive!*)
Located in Ocean City, MD, if you’re looking for ratchet beach bars, house music and old bay crab cakes this is the place for you.
9. LONG TRAIL BREWING COMPANY!
Looking for a brewery tour? Here’s a great one in VT! I also highly recommended buying Vermont sharp cheddar cheese, homemade maple syrup and anything maple flavored from Vermont. It’s amazing. And the donuts… DYING.
10. THE HAMPTONS!
We had to. I mean, it’s the Hamptons. If you’re feeling bougie, head to an oyster roast, crash a bachelor party or look for Kimye’s mansion. Montauk has the best beaches and the Surf Lodge is a total go-to as well. Go on, embrace your inner stardom and sip on some rose and put on the biggest sunglasses you own and show the Hamptons who’s boss!
Live it up wile you can peeps before these long summer days are over! Go, go, GO!
