Exploring the Hamptons

August this year had a different feel for me because I was not going back to school! My parents had a wedding in New Jersey so Claire and I joined them for a little get-away. My parents attended the wedding on Saturday night while Claire and I enjoyed a fun dinner and evening together. 

We woke up Sunday morning and drove our rental car to the Hamptons. It was about a three hour drive and traffic wasn't too bad because it was Sunday morning. Upon arrival, we stopped in South Hampton and thoroughly enjoyed walking up and down the main shopping area. It was gorgeous weather and we had such a great time taking in the sights. There are so many fantastic restaurants and choosing where to have lunch was not easy. We ended up eating a delicious lunch at Le Charlot. 

Before heading to Sag Harbor, we had some dessert and coffee at the Golden Pear Cafe. We loved how they had coffee pots on the counter for customers to pour for themselves. The bakery is fantastic and it was a great afternoon pick me up.
Sag Harbor was gorgeous! We stopped and looked at the beautiful boats and enjoyed walking along the water! It was a fun stop before we headed to our resort in East Hampton. We stayed at the EHP Resort and it was a little gem! It has recently been redone and we liked it because we had our own little "house" with three bedrooms and bathrooms. The accommodations were charming and decorated in whites and neutrals. The resort is on the water with two fun restaurants, a pool and tennis courts. One of the mornings we enjoyed a boat ride around the harbor and the afternoon at the pool was relaxing! EHP is about ten minutes from downtown East Hampton.
One morning we drove to Montauk and checked out the lighthouse and the beach town. We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Gurney's Resort right on the water. There happened to be a Dior Deck pop up at the resort, which was delightful to see. Montauk has a very different feel than other parts of the Hamptons and we liked seeing the various towns. We spent the afternoon strolling the main street of East Hampton. It was relaxing and idyllic.
One of the nights we ate at The Palm. The Palm is located inside The Huntting Inn right on Main Street in East Hampton. Driving around East Hampton is a must. We admired the landscaping and flowers and gorgeous homes. 
Another great spot for breakfast, lunch or an afternoon pick me up is Carissa's Bakery. The outdoor patio was relaxing and a beautiful space to enjoy a nosh!
We ended our stay with a visit to Wolffer Estate Vineyards. After a lovely lunch and a flight of rose, we enjoyed purchasing some wine to take home! After lunch we enjoyed the start of the Hampton Classic Horse Show. The four of us loved walking around and seeing the various vendors before sitting and watching the competition. We had a great time exploring the Hamptons!
