Things to See and Do in the Hamptons
When it comes to the Hamptons, most of us associate this gorgeous stretch of villages with its beautiful beaches. While it is true that the Hamptons are tough to beat when it comes to summer fun, there are still plenty of attractions worth visiting once the temperature has gone down and the bathing suits have been packed away. When the summer season has come and gone, stick around and check out what else the Hamptons has to offer. Read on to see a list of fun-filled activities recommended by the staff at the Baker House.
Art Galleries – With art shows all year long, the Hamptons are positively teeming with a wide variety of art galleries. Arlene Bujese Gallery, Mark Humphrey Gallery and the Crazy Monkey are just a few of the exciting and diverse art spaces you can check out while you’re here.
Golf – One of the most enjoyable ways to kick back and relax when you are visiting the Hamptons is by taking a trip to the golf course. Whether you choose the Bethpage State Park Courses, Montauk Downs, or the Poxabogue Golf Center, you can get your fill of fresh air and sun while enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
Museums – If you have ever wondered about the history of the Hamptons and how the area has changed and developed over the years, visiting one of the local museums can be a great way to get acquainted. The Montauk Point Lighthouse and Museum offers remarkable views, and the East Hampton Town Marine Museum and Home Sweet Home Museum offer entertainment for visitors of all ages, and families as well.
Shopping – One of the biggest pulls of the Hamptons is the impressive amount of luxury shops you can visit and splurge in. Whether you’re a fan of BCBG Max Azria, Coach, Ralph Lauren Polo, or Elie Tahari, you can find all these shops and many others on bustling, picturesque Main Street and Newtown Lane.
Wineries and Vineyards – When you want to relax and imbibe with friends and family, you can’t beat a winery or vineyard. In the Hamptons, we have plenty of both. Choose from Wolffer Estate Winery, Duck Walk Vineyards, or Channing Daughters Winery and get ready to try a variety of different delicious wines and enjoy live music, tasting classes and tasty food pairings.
At the Baker House, we are passionate about all that the Hamptons has to offer, even after the summer has passed us by. Whether you fancy a trip to the museum, a visit to the art galleries, or are in need of a big shopping excursion, you can stay entertained with all these activities and much more, all year long.
