As a Hamptons local for over twenty years, I will guide you through the three most popular towns out east, include the most unique, local hideaways, how to beat that Hamptons weekend summer traffic, share money saving and insider tips, and uncover the tricks of the trade to make the most out of your Hamptons stay.
The Hamptons is the quintessential summer paradise. Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world (Main Beach and Cooper's Beach), restaurants offering scrumptious delicacies for every type of budget and appetite, top name-brands and locally owned boutiques, miles of hiking trails, and an abundance of historic buildings and homes are all found here.
The Hamptons has everything for every type of traveler. Though many people do not know that the Hamptons were once a writers and artists vibrant community, where well known artists and writers such as Jackson Pollack, Willem de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Kurt Vonnegut, and John Steinbeck congregated and lived. Thus the Hamptons is also home to a vast number of art galleries and museums. The Hamptons has a rich history of thriving vineyards, farms, and local businesses that are still in business today.
Lastly, there are numerous off-the-beaten path finds that are very inexpensive and easily accessible for weekend travelers. Comb the roads of this millionaire's playground, take a breath of fresh air at the spectacular, word famous beaches, dine at the local's top rated eateries, and discover the quaint seaside communities through the eyes of a longtime Hamptons resident.
