Summer is here and that means we need a pocket guide to the best beaches an hour or two out of the city. Maybe we're without cottages, or looking for a daytrip. Well, these beautiful spots have so much to offer. From fossils to trains, ice cream to perogies, these beach escapades will long be remembered for the swimming, sand castle competitions, walks along the beach, and glorious sunsets. Hello, summer. We're glad you're here.
