Things to do in The Hamptons

Besides going to the beach, there are a number of great things to do in The Hamptons. Here are my recommendations:

  1. Montauk Lighthouse
    On our first day, we set out to visit the Montauk Lighthouse. It is located at the most eastern tip of Long Island and was the first lighthouse in the state of New York when they started building it in 1792. There is a cute museum on the grounds of the lighthouse and one can go all the way to the top of the Lighthouse for a fabulous view of the sea and the whole area of the Hamptons. The entrance fee is 11USD for adults and 4USD for children (in 2018).

  2. Wölfer Wine Estate
    The area of the Hamptons is also very well known for its wine. We chose to visit the Wölffer Vineyard during our stay and really loved it. It was started in 1988 and has been at the heart of the local winemakers ever since. The main house is surrounded by vineyards and inside is, in addition to the shop and production, a beautiful restaurant and terrace where you can enjoy the products they make here. We had lunch with very tasty rose wine and didn’t want to leave... It was perfect!

  3. Sag Harbor and the other small towns
    The Hamptons are made up of many picturesque towns, all pretty with beautiful houses, a centre for shopping and dining and some typical American buildings. We visited Sag Harbor, walked along the waterfront, had a tasty coffee, and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. It is a nice thing to do while in the area and good to get an impression of the local lifestyle.

  4. Visit a local Farmstand
    As there are so many farms around The Hamptons, there is also a huge number of farm stands everywhere. I could spend hours walking around the produce, smelling it, taking photos, and taking some home. Fresh fruits and vegetables, homemade cakes and pies and fresh flowers. There is usually a huge selection of all kinds of fruits and veggies and they taste so good!!!!
