    Discover The Hamptons

Every summer, New Yorkers beat the heat and head out east for trips to the Hamptons. Located just an hour and a half by car or two and a half hours aboard the Jitney train, it’s a popular and well-known destination for summer escapes. Though this seaside town might be synonymous with beach houses and sipping rosé, there is so much more to do and explore. We’ve rounded up our favorites below to ensure an unforgettable experience.


Near East Hampton lies the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center where the work of famed abstract expressionist artist Jackson Pollock comes to life. After Pollock married fellow artist Lee Krasner, they moved to this small home overlooking the Accabonac Creek. At the House and Study Center, viewers can take a tour of where the artist created his masterpieces and can even experience an art exhibit you can walk on. Where else can you actually touch a Pollock?

Eat + Drink

It may be best known as an enclave for the rich and famous, but there are many ways to experience the Hamptons without emptying your bank account. One of the most popular happy hour spots is at Dockers in East Quogue. Every Wednesday, crowds gather for their famous Food Truck Happy Hour, boasting great deals on scrumptious food and drink that won’t break the bank. Even better? Dockers boasts million-dollar views of the water.


Spending time in the Hamptons also means spending as much time as you can outdoors. Luckily, some of the best shopping can be found at the local farmers’ markets. Scattered throughout all parts of the city, our favorites include the Southampton Farmer’s Market (held at the Southampton Art Center), the Round Swamp Farm (located in both Bridgehampton and Southampton), and Nurel’s Farmers’ Market (held in Hampton Bays). All the markets include organic produce as well as bakery items and even select wines and spirits.
