Going Antiquing in Sag Harbor

Several of the towns that make up the Hamptons are lovely but many have a nonstop see-and-be-seen scene and make it hard to escape feeling, well, unimportant. The village of Sag Harbor is a quieter, charming, and more approachable town. Here, you'll feel like less of an outsider and will be welcomed as a tourist. The marina is perfect for strolling, stopping for a classic ice cream cone at Big Olaf’s or a not-so-classic doughnut at Grindstone Coffee & Donuts. The Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum is a fascinating slice of the past and Bay Theater is perfect for a night out. And of course, make time to relax on Havens Beach.

Hang out on Coopers beach

Coopers Beach is easily accessible from Southampton, with it (arguably) being one of the best beaches in the region. It doesn’t matter what season you visit, its sandy shores always draw a crowd, especially on a gloriously sunny day. Take yourself a picnic, enjoy the rays or even try your hands at surfing. If you’re looking for less crowded times, consider visiting during the weekdays as it’s one of the best things to do in the Hamptons that you’ll surely enjoy.

Things to Do in the Hamptons

The Hamptons are famed for the beautiful beaches as much as for its celebrity residents like Ina Garten, Neil Patrick Harris, and Sarah Jessica Parker. But there’s plenty to enjoy on Long Island’s South Fork even if you’re not hobnobbing with the rich and famous and Manhattan and Brooklyn residents often head there for summer weekend getaways. The Hamptons, which generally refers to the southern half of Long Island’s eastern-most end, are often called the South Fork. Towns in the Hamptons include Southampton, Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Sag Harbor, Sagaponack, Amagansett, and Montauk. If you’re looking to relax on powdery beaches, see top-notch modern art, and taste wine and beer directly from the source, the Hamptons have all that and more. Here are the top things to do in the Hamptons, from eating and drinking to surfing and biking.

Hamptons in summer

Indian Island Country Club

A good public tract with some great views of the Peconic River and environs, this course gets a lot of play and remains in pretty good shape through much of the season. While not extremely difficult, it does present some challenges, especially at the first hole--a VERY long par 4--and at the eleventh, a tight and long par 3. Good deal, especially for senior Suffolk County residents during weekdays.
