Brand New: Road Trip through the Hamptons

Hi Everyone,

With our 30% OFF BEACH AERIAL SALE in full effect, I wanted to highlight one of my favorite places to getaway for warm days on the beach, the Hamptons. I know this is especially true for any east coasters reading along but certainly not lost on anyone who loves a good day at the beach.

To celebrate my latest aerials from the group of beach towns along the coast of NY's easter tip of Long Island known as the Hamptons, I think we should pack up and hit the road! With that in mind, I bring you our Hamptons Road Trip...lets go!

SOUTHAMPTON

The first stop, Southampton, is approximately 7 miles of beautiful beaches, totaling 11 individually. One of my personal preferences is Coopers Beach, as it has convenient parking, umbrella rentals and a concession stand for whenever you're feeling a little parched. After getting your fill of the sun and sand, you won't want to miss strolling through the Southampon Village, which is primed for excellent people watching as well as window shopping...and of course, a sweet snack

 

 

To see more on Southampton, you should defifinitely check out the Travel Guide I did last year, which gives lots of recommendations on restaurants and other visiter tips. There's still more Hamptons to see, though so it's time to hop back in the car and head towards East Hampton.

EAST HAMPTON

As seen in East Hamptons Umbrellas or Two Mile Hollow, the beaches of East Hampton are pretty irresitable. However, if you're looking to stretch your legs a bit, there is a fantastic hike that loops the Cedar Point Lighthouse. It's a dog friendly trail, too, so bring your four legged friends.

 

Let's keep heading east to the next stop on the map, Amagansett.

AMAGANNSET

The name comes from a Native American word meaning "place of good water," which makes perfect sense to me. The town's Main Street is a designated historic district, which means you'll never find a chain restaurant or boutique on it. This only adds to its quaint feeling IMO.

Ready to surf? It's time to keep it moving to the eastern end of the South Shore of Long Island, Montauk.

MONTAUK

Ride the waves at two of the best surf beaches on the East Coast (both in summer & wintertime) Turtle Cove and Ditch Plains.

 

After a beautiful day of moving your way through the Hamptons, I'd suggest checking into either Gurney's Beach Club or Surf Lodge for your night's rest. To get an entire Travel Guide devoted to Montauk, look no further than right here, but in the meantime, please allow me to say - Thanks so much! - for joining me on the jaunt up the coast.

Cheers

xx
