About East Hampton
East Hampton is one of the eastern-most towns in New York and is a favorite summer destination among people who live in New York City. Within easy reach of most East Hampton vacation rentals is 70 miles of coastline with a stretch of beach to accommodate the large summer crowds. If you've longed to play among the trendy elite then this seasonal vacation spot is the place for you.
Things to Do
Look for East Hampton vacation rentals near the attractions that you wish to explore. Start by checking out Two Mile Hollow Beach during a visit in the summer. It is one of the few places in the area where you can swim worry-free since there is a full-time lifeguard. This beach also has open sandy areas for the children to play and the water is warm and clean.
While most people enjoy the beach and ocean in East Hampton, it's not the only thing to do. The LongHouse Reserve features beautiful gardens and sculptures in a serene setting. There are also a number of opportunities to take in the arts, culture, and design with the Pollock-Krasner House, Guild Hall's top-notch theater performances, and the exquisite Leiber Collection. Round Swamp Farm is the ideal place to pick up some of the freshest veggies, seasonally prepared dishes, and baked goods. The history buff will love the East Hampton Historical Society housed in the Osborn-Jackson House and the Sweet Home Museum, a beautifully preserved and untouched 18th century home.
For sports-lovers, the East Hampton Golf Club is one of the most popular golf courses in the region. Play a full 18 holes here, or make use of the practice range. Even for non-golfers, the scenery is stunning.
East Hampton also offers many charming boutiques. Window shopping along Main Street, Newton Lane, and Park Place is as popular as purchasing the high-end coastal treasures that are found there.
Most New Yorkers take the jitney or the Long Island Railroad to the Hamptons from the city, leaving them without a car once they're there. If you want to rely on public transportation while at your East Hampton vacation home, that is certainly possible. However, if you'd like to explore more of Long Island, a car is beneficial.
You can fly directly to Long Island and land at the Long Island MacArthur Airport but flights to this smaller regional airport are much pricier than flying into New York and driving or taking the jitney or train.
Summer is high time in the Hamptons with warm days in the high 70s and cooler nights dipping into the 60s. Winters temps hover around freezing.
The nightlife in East Hampton is a major draw for many. Providing hot nightlife is essential when a large percentage of visitors are from Manhattan. However, the hottest clubs are difficult to get into when you're visiting a town known for its famous denizens. Many of the hippest clubs are also eateries so catching an early dinner is a way to get in the door before the bouncer arrives. If you don't feel like waiting you can always try one of the Hampton's alcohol delivery services and create your own nighttime festivities.
East Hampton has become a major culinary hotspot with a lot of Manhattan chefs opening restaurants on Long Island. As mentioned earlier many trendy restaurants morph into ultra-lounges after midnight. Outdoor dining is also popular in the Hamptons. Food is a major event in this town with each award-winning chef trying to outdo the others in their gorgeous Zagat-rated domains.
An East Hampton vacation home places you in one of the hottest beach locations in the country. Keep an eye out for well-heeled celebrities as you dine on some of the most delicious, inventive dishes you've experienced in a while.
