Surely somebody sells a basic red and white striped t-shirt?

I'm headed to the beach next weekend. I have a spiffy boater hat for sun protection. I would love to find a red and white striped t-shirt to complete the Victorian/Edwardian-ish seaside look, but I am having a heck of a time finding one. [more inside]

Quiet beaches for a day trip from Baltimore?

Do you have any secret spots within an hour or so of Baltimore that you want to share with the entirety of the internets? Unlike previous AskMes, I don't want to go swimming, or deal with a billion tourists. I just want to go read a good book near the water for a day (ideally on a quiet beach, or in a park near a beach).

B&B in/or near Rehoboth Beach, DE?

Would like to drive from DC to Rehoboth Beach, DE on a Tuesday and come back on a Wednesday, staying in a B&B overnight (at the end of July.) Can't find a B&B in that area that allows people to stay for one night instead of two. Do you know of a decent B&B in Delaware near the beach/ocean that would allow two people to stay one night?

Sunscreen, Beach Umbrella, shovel, microscope....

I am packing for an afternoon-evening beach trip with our kids. Since we are leaving in the afternoon, instead of first thing in the AM, I have time to really think about packing. What are some great things to pack for the beach that people don't think of or forget? (for instance: The book you've been meaning to read, a gallon or 2 of water you leave in the car to rinse off sandy bodies, baby powder to help get off sticky sand, portable kids microscope for looking at sand/critters, baggies to bring home found treasures)

A la recherce de temps perdu in Rockaway Beach

My dad, who has some health problems that limit his mobility and sometimes his mental acuity, asked me to investigate the possibility of spending 3 days at the beach near where he grew up, which is Belle Harbor. I live in Brooklyn but don't know anything about Belle Harbor, including exactly what it is. I think it's more or less the same as Rockaway Beach, and I've found some rental bungalows around Beach 110th Street. My question--is that where Belle Harbor is, and could my mom and dad and I enjoy three days there with no car? Given that leisure activities could basically be the beach and just my dad soaking up the nostalgic vibe of his native 'hood, could we find restaurants, simple groceries, a quiet bar and other essentials within a very limited walking distance?

How can we plan this beach getaway vacation without going too far from NYC?

My friends and I live in NYC. We want to spend a night at a local beach (Far Rockaway, Sandy Hook, Fire Island, whatever). Ideally, this would consist of a trip via public transit to a beach, and then staying at a reasonably priced hotel close to said beach. If possible, we'd like to avoid renting a car or splurging on a vacation rental. [more inside]
