NEWPORT GUIDE | 12 JULY 2014
Is there anything like the old-fashioned New England beach-town charm during summertime? We’re thinking lobster rolls and oyster shooters, seersucker (only appropriate Memorial Day- Labor Day) and seashells. Newport is a proper getaway and that’s why we’re so excited to take the Grey Lady to one of our favorite places- Castle Hill Inn. We’ve partnered with them before, so it’s no secret how we love them so. When we’re not hosting a mimosa brunch on Saturday morning , we’re gonna be exploring the seascape a bit. Join us?
 
The Breakers- Could you really go to Newport without checking out one of the most famed mansions? Those Vanderbilts were really up to something here. Ah the good life. 
Castle Hill Inn Lighthouse- Stay on the Castle Hill Inn property, climb a few (we promise!) flights of stairs and end up with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Cue the sunset. 

Cliff Walk- After all those lobster rolls, you might be ready for a romantic walk along the coast. It’s got a few more challenging areas to it, so maybe leave the wedges back in the room for this one. Flo’s Clam Shack- A Newport Institution since 1936. There’s clams. There’s lobster. There’s oysters. There’s $3 beers. Need any more info?

MONTAUK GUIDE | 4-5 JULY 2014
Is there anything like summer in the city? And by the city, you know we mean the Hamptons. Now you’re with us. When we were invited to bring the Grey Lady Swim Shop to Ruschmeyer’s over the holiday weekend, we jumped at it. More like jumped up + down in our chairs, while giggling a bit. Like. Holiday weekend in Montauk? Yes, please. Is that even considered work? When we’re not at the airstream, we’ll be (safely) werkin’ on our tan, and hitting up these joints: 

Martine & Juan - We discovered this shop online and heard that it was a bit of a destination. It’s sort of hidden, so there’s that. But also, it’s one of those shops that takes you to somewhere else, meaning that buying something from here will always remind you of vacation. 

Gosman’s Clam Bar - Gosman’s is an institution and since they’ve spread into the restaurant, the topside, the inlet cafe and the clam bar, we’re betting they’re pretty phenomenal. 

Hither Hills State Park-  What would a stay in the Hamptons be without a bike ride by the beach? So saddle up, pack the basket with an ice coffee + watermelon, and head to the beach! Get some exercise on the way too. 

Ruschmeyer’s- The Magic Garden specifically. It’s got picnic tables with umbrellas, hammocks, fire pits and globe lights in the trees overhead. Instagram.Heaven. 
Around Montauk this weekend? We’d love to see you! @journellerdtrip + #journellerdtrip

JOURNELLE AIRSTREAM- RUE DAILY | 20 JUNE 2014
Since it’s #flashbackfriday and the airstream Swim Shop is rolling out to McCarren Hotel tomorrow, we’re taking a look back at this ah-mazing feature on The Grey Lady that Rue Magazine did last fall. 

JOURNELLE AIRSTREAM- RUE DAILY | 20 JUNE 2014

Since it’s #flashbackfriday and the airstream Swim Shop is rolling out to McCarren Hotel tomorrow, we’re taking a look back at this ah-mazing feature on The Grey Lady that Rue Magazine did last fall. 

WILLIAMSBURG GUIDE | 21 JUNE 2014
By now, you should probably know that this Saturday from 11 am - 5pm, The Grey Lady will be parked on her beach towel in front of the McCarren Hotel in Williamsburg, ready to get you [swim] suited up. Since The Grey Lady is a total BK newbie, we’re pretty excited to hang out and explore the hood a bit - ya know, make a proper road trip out of it. What’s that saying? “When in Williamsburg…” or something like that. In any event, aprés swim, we’ll be hitting up the following fave spots. 
The McCarren Hotel + Pool - We’ll be there. The  pool will be there. The pool bar will be there. Know who else will be there? You, obvi.
Catbird - Ummm, swoon. Home to some of the sweetest + most delicate jewelry, cool candles + home goods and stationary around. Plus they have a bench outside for you to park your boyfriend on-except for when you’re hinting at something inside.
Hotel Delmano - Obsessed. If we could live at a bar, it would be this one. Prepare for a serious case of apartment envy but at a bar. Plus, their cocktails are the most exquisite (and delicious) pieces of art. We promise you won’t want to leave.  
Reynard - Except maybe to go here. Seriously, Williamsburg, you’re putting the charms on us. We’re booking our next staycation at the Wythe Hotel and are grabbing a meal here as often as possible. 
Got any other good pit stops for us? Let us know: @journellerdtrip + #journellerdtrip

Join us for some shoppin’, swimmin’, schmoozin’ and boozin’.
Oh, and 81 degree weather. Can’t wait? Neither can we. See ya there! While you’re on the subway, you might want to pump this playlist. Promise it’ll get you summatime ready.
