    For those adventurous hipsters seeking a vacation outside of Williamsburg, a new beach getaway in New York's Rockaways will be opening just before July 4 festivities. Offering three bars (hopefully with Pabst-centric happy hour), two restaurants, and 12 seasonal rentals, the Playland Motel is sure to be an instant hit. The motel’s Rockabus runs from Battery Harris in Williamsburg to Playland, ensuring easy access for its target demographic. Of course, you’ll want to arrive as early in the summer as possible, that way you can claim you knew about it way before everyone else.
