Famous East Hampton Vacation Review

East Hampton touts a private lure for a vacation on Long Island, New York. This personal review pinpoints sightseeing rarely known unless experienced, which I share in these living and travel trips to eastern Long Island. After reading this guide you will know why famous people choose East Hampton for their summer excursions and why you might also.

The Hampton's have been well known for celebrity citings from Jacqueline Kennedy, Steven Spielberg to Phyllis Diller. This review will explain why these famous people and others vacationed in New York, Suffolk County's, Long Island elite town of East Hampton.

Having lived in East Hampton for 10 years, my vacation review is from personal experiences about Long Island's well known Hampton's township. Sightseeing can be best explained with weekend excursions in the area as they were then and remain somewhat the same today.

Location has a lot to do with the vacation paradise East Hampton holds title to as far back as early 1950's to my recollection. Nestled in among bodies of water and the absolute remoteness of parcels of land in the outskirts, East Hampton is the ideal get away.

Gardiner's Bay is a calm body of water surrounding Gardiner's Island, which was aptly named by the owners, the Gardiners. My late sister went to high school with one of the Gardiner girls, which sometimes allowed trespassing on the Island owned and posted with no trespassing signs to all boaters. In the summer the shores were splashed with a trickle of warm water leading to course, yet camel colored sandy shores. Fishing away from the land yielded blow fish and some lost flounder that somehow swam into the harbor and were caught by sportsman and women in small boats using worms for bait.

East Hampton is the most easterly township and one of the two small peninsulas jetting out from the entire Long Island land property. Atlantic Oceanfront or view property is prime and treasured since there is so little of it. The sand dunes formed by the gentle shifting winds provide a backdrop to the picturesque peacefulness of some of the world's best beaches.

Modern improvements seemed to affect the shops in East Hampton over the years replacing the small boutiques bringing the New York City chains east, giving the trendy feel to East Hampton township. Two diligent land overseers kept watch to preserve the balance of forestation, fields of wildflowers while real estate grew also. Zoning laws protect the most pleasant community of East Hampton. Peconic Land preservation charges a percentage of the purchase price limiting the take over of a housing market that perhaps  could destroy some of the drawing effects of East Hampton.

During festive times East Hampton is hostess to "Big Ships" that smoothly slide along side the Atlantic coastal regions at Memorial Day celebrations. Forth of July fireworks that once brought thousands to Long Island's East Hampton display no longer include that gala affair. Individual beach parties with cookouts are also a thing of the past because ordinances have been passed prohibiting those fun events.

Montauk Point is easily accessible through Highway #27 from the southfork, East Hampton town. Just 120 miles from N.Y. City many escape the sweltering urban heat of the summer; descending on the Hamptons, especially East Hampton. Posh art exhibits are dotted on the green lawn areas and in front of public buildings in the spring and specifically more so in the summer when the money flows easily from the wealthy seasonal dwellers. Horse shows, polo and other special sports are planned just for the New York City visitors.

Prices are not decreasing on Long Island's East Hampton township so don't be surprised to spend more than you anticipated for lodging when you choose this Long Island town for a vacation. Less than a two hour drive from Manhattan, New York City, East Hampton is a famous vacation spot for some.

A most enjoyable post. I have heard of the Hamptons and seen highlight on television only. Like to visit there  and I notice as you say well kniown ppl have stayed there as well.

A very interesting read - lots of great information and I wasn't aware it was so close to New York. Not close enough for me though as I live in Australia.

It has my vote - just wish I lived a little closer!
