The Hamptons are known world-wide as a playground for NYC’s wealthiest, and it’s true that the area gets a lot of Manhattan traffic. But just as many of our guests come to the Hamptons as a bucket-list item. Chris, Debbie, and I take seriously our commitment to be ambassadors to the area in order to help our guests who are not (yet!) frequent flyers get the most out of their visit.
To this end, many years ago we drafted an informal South Fork itinerary that can be done in one day if necessary or two if exploring further. We also provide a detailed map that has every dirt road on the East End (a far cry from the sad map provided by the rental car agencies!). For guests staying longer, or those who would especially enjoy exploring Long Island’s burgeoning Wine Country, we created an itinerary that focuses on the North Fork of Long Island. (One thing we admit we can never do with this latter itinerary is keep up to date on new winery recommendations, as the number of wineries on the North Fork have gone from about 15 when we first opened to well over 50 today!)
And, for those who really want to get down into the cracks and see the East End that those of us who live here know about, we created an expanded itinerary in the form of a game called the Selfie Scavenger Hunt. The Selfie Scavenger Hunt goes further off the beaten path to show off some of the historic, quirky, charming, or just plain gorgeous aspects of the South Fork that are never found by those who think the Hamptons are all about beaches, shopping, and celebrity sightings.
