Where in the Hamptons do you Recommend

Hello:

We are planning a trip to NYC in early July and are hoping to tack on a trip somewhere in the Hamptons. We have never been to the Hamptons, but have heard they are very beautiful. We do not know which part would be best for us. We are looking to explore towns with good restaurants and unique boutique shops. Is there a place that you would recommend?

Thank you.

East Hampton is for you. Check on the left side of the page for things to do etc. I'm sure yolu will really enjoy it. If you are driving out don't drive out on a Sat. the traffic is awful. I'm sure more TA members will chime in.

All the towns that make up the "Hamptons" would fit what you have asked for, West Hampton, Southampton, East Hampton or even Montauk. Southampton is the largest of the towns and has the most little shops and restaurants. East Hampton is your best bet if you are hoping to spot famous people. Where ever you go expect to pay more then you would ever dream ( Last summer some deli's were selling lobster salad for $140.00 per pound) .

No matter what town you are going to, don't try to drive out. Take the Long Island railroad or one of the bus services ( Hampton Jitney or Hampton Luxury Liner). If you want to go to the beaches you will have to take a cab, but it is alot easier than sitting in traffic.

Hope this helps

That is a beautiful area. You will have to drive to any shops or restaurants, but it will be an easy 20 min drive on back roads to East Hampton.
