Tucked away in the Rockaway Peninsula, Rockaway Beach is a go-to destination for summer fun and year-round, shopping, dining, and recreation.
Over the last decade, the Rockaways have undergone a significant period of revitalization, bringing scores of new residents to the area in search of affordable housing and a relaxed pace of life. Real estate runs the gamut from single-family homes and apartments to condos and desirable waterfront properties. Commuters have options with a convenient train system and new ferry route, making it easier than ever to balance big-city hustle with beachside living.
People flock to the beachside neighborhood for its laid-back vibe and vibrant network of family-friendly entertainments and old school recreation. Surf shops and taco stands sit alongside cafes and outdoor bars. Hit the beach for a lazy day of swimming and surfing, or grab a quick lunch at one of the upbeat food stops along the boardwalk.
A close-knit community with a family-friendly vibe, Rockaway Beach caters to nature lovers and those looking to move away from fast-paced city life.
