For Regan's birthday/day off we went to Rockaway Beach (it's to the south/east of us in Queens and about 75 minutes away by subway, not bad at all). It wasn't very hot but I'm sure glad we went when we did cuz it's rain on the forecast for as many days as we can see now. We like the beach for being the beach but, admittedly, our main motivation for choosing Rockaway was this taco stand. And it did not disappoint. We ate there walking to and from the beach. Really the beach in between was more of a technicality. (okay not really. but sorta.) They also had italian ice and a veggie stand and a surf shop. All attached to each other. But we couldn't really be bothered by those when we had tacos to eat.
