I am officially jetting off to the Hamptons in a few days, and I can’t contain my excitement. Anyone who knows me will tell you that my favorite thing to do is to unwind in the Hamptons with family and friends. Throughout summer, my sister and I work on our blogs and seek the best and most instagrammable places to capture our memories together. So, if you’re looking for inspiration on what to do on your next trip out east, I got you covered.
Shock Ice Cream, West Hampton
Do you have a sweet tooth? Well, this is the place for you! Shock Ice cream is located in West Hampton and is home to the most excellent ice cream and carnival cone on the east end. As long as I remember, my parents have taken my siblings and I to this old fashion ice cream shop for a taste of summer. The bright pastel colors of the parlor and Ice cream will draw you in and will make you want to purchase the most Instagram-worthy dessert.
Wölffer Estate Vineyard, Sagaponack
Everyone loves a good wine tasting and exploring the beautiful vineyards of the east end. So, Rosé all day at Wölffer’s and listen to live music while you sip summer in a bottle. Wölffer Estate is unlike other wineries. They offer a scenic yet cozy space looking out to the vines, delicious cheese platters, and Instagrammable floral wine bottles. Therefore, grab your best friend and get your sip on!
Sag Harbor Village
I absolutely love taking small day trips to Sag Harbor Village to visit their old shops, fantastic coffee houses, fabulous thrift stores, and of course to watch celebrities dock their outrageous yachts. Since Sag Harbor was once a famous whaling town, there are photo opportunities everywhere you go!
LUNCH Restaurant, Chesapeake
Lunch would be the perfect place for a 4th of July inspired Insta! The red, white, and blue décor and the beach ambiance will help you rack up those likes. The Nostalgic roadside shack offers a world famous and delicious lobster roll that no Hampton-goer, traveler, or celebrity can pass up.
The Surf Lodge, Montauk
Are you ready to kick off the summer? You MUST head out to The Surf Lodge in Montauk! So, throw on your best outfit because The Surf Lodge gets pretty wild on the weekends and you might just run into a celebrity or two. This super-trendy hot spot hosts intimate concerts overlooking the ocean and artsy cocktails that are picture perfect for an Instagram.
Anywhere with Hydrangeas
You cannot visit the Hamptons without seeing hydrangeas everywhere you go! While my favorite hydrangeas to Instagram are right in my backyard, a beautiful yet colorful photo op will be in Southampton on Main Street or the road to Montauk.
Montauk Brewing Company
Share an ale at Montauk Brewing Company and enjoy the refreshing taste of summer. Don’t forget to Snap a photo in their taproom with one of their vibrant cans and take a minute to taste test their different flavors.
Boardy Barn, Hampton Bays
Did you go to Boardy Barn if you don’t Instagram it? While this place isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing, their smiley face stickers will add a nice/fun touch to your photo. This boozefest in Hampton Bays offers cheap beers and great music to get down to. So, end your weekend with a bang at one of the most lit spots in the Hamptons
