The Hamptons – the summer home of Manhattan’s elite. The beachy destination at the end of Long Island has been growing in popularity with vacationers who want to experience what it’s like to summer with the rich and famous. Not only does it boast beautiful views from any of the shores, but it’s also worth a visit just for the wineries which line the North Fork (northern part of the island) which has been producing great wine lately.
- Transportation = The Jitney (transportation from NYC to the Hamptons)
- Best Time to Visit = May – September for beaches
Things to Note
Traffic on the island gets bad, especially on weekends. Allow yourself plenty of time (and patience) to get to any of the eastern towns.
