What to do in The Hamptons

The juxtaposition of the old with the new truly defines the tony Hamptons, a collection of beachside villages and hamlets dotting the South Fork of Long Island. Behemoth 100-year-old whale jawbones and the jagged tools of whalers are a few of the highlights at the Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum, located in an 1845 Greek Revival mansion. And just down the road from Sag Harbor is East Hampton’s ultra-modern SL East nightclub, a 7,000-square-foot offshoot of Manhattan’s SL club, complete with light and laser shows, jet-set DJs, and celebrity sightings. When SL East closes its doors at 4 a.m., the area’s numerous family farms begin setting up their roadside stands—including the landmark Hayground Market, which greets drivers on Route 27 as they enter the Hamptons and stop to pick their own berries and wildflowers in adjacent fields.
