A Local’s Guide to Sag Harbor
The Hamptons. An iconic summer destination where New Yorkers escape the city grind. A place to soak up the summer sun on the mansion-lined beaches, instead of people-packed subway platforms.
In the Hamptons, food, fashion and lifestyle brands curate a vacation experience that feels more accessible than 5th Avenue, while still maintaining a sense of sophistication. In my past 20 summers of traveling to the Hamptons for weekend getaways, I’ve found that Sag Harbor specifically has maintained the charm of a quaint summer town, setting it apart from more contemporary destinations on the island. Still, there are enough restaurants and shopping options in this Hamptons Village to overwhelm the weekend tourist, so I’m here to break down the 2.3 square miles of summer happiness.
