Summers in NYC can be a little, shall I say it, sweaty. While I love sunset rooftop cocktails and getting lost in Central Park, there’s no better summertime feeling than escaping to The Hamptons & Montauk. The morning seafood catch, homemade ice cream, big ocean waves, rosé on the beach, what's not to love about this Long Island paradise?

Ground Transportation It's generally best to have a car, but you can easily get to The Hamptons + Montauk via The Hampton Jitney.
Languages Spoken English. The Hamptons + Montauk (and the New York Tri-State area) is generally quite educated and affluent. While some people speak Spanish, French, and Italian, among other languages, I wouldn't suggest it's very common to have multiple conversations outside of English.
