    Subject:  Long Island Beach recommendation for taking baby via LIRR
    Comment:  We just took our kids to Long Beach two weekends ago and we had a great time.It is very easy to get to on LIRR and the beach is way nicer/cleaner than Brighton Beach. It is worth a trip!If you decide to go, there is a fee to enter the beach. To get the best deal - purchase a day trip ticket offered by LIRR under deals and getaways / beach getaways in a ticket machine. I believe it is $22.75 and it includes a round trip on LIRR and a beach pass plus you skip the line at the beach for a beach pass.We took 10 am train there and 5 pm train back. It is around 15-20 minutes from atlantic terminal to Jamaica and then you have to switch trains (walk across the platform) and take another train to Long Beach for approximately another 20 minutes. When you get off the train, the beach is walking distance from the train station.
