The Hamptons

We spent a little part of summer 2018 in The Hamptons, a beautiful area east of Long Island, New York. This destination has been on my radar ever since “Sex and the City” and I was curious about what it was really like. The beautiful beaches, the stunning houses, and the fabulous Atlantic ocean did not disappoint. Only about three hours drive from Long Island City and we arrived in the picturesque town of East Hampton. We chose an Airbnb House for our stay and there was a lot to choose from in all different price categories. Ours was in the medium price range and it was okay. We had a lot of space and a great outside BBQ area but I would not really recommend it. If at all possible and in your price range, choose a house by or close to the beach... it will be worth it! We loved exploring the area and enjoyed the summer feeling everywhere. The weather was very sunny and we went to the fabulous beach, tried a few vineyards, visited the lighthouse, dreamed to own a house here (dreaming is allowed :)) and had dinner at the "Lobster Roll". It is a restaurant located between Montauk and Easthampton and it became famous when the TV series "The Affair" was filmed there. The Hamptons are a great place for a vacation, either in combination with New York but also as a stand alone holiday. Below I have enclosed a few tips and photos which I hope you enjoy and find useful.
