If you’re heading for East Hampton, particularly for the first time, you might want to do a little reading before you get there. Understanding the culture of the area could go a long way toward making your visit a more successful one.
Start with picking up a copy of Hamptons Magazine, which highlights locals as well as seasonal visitors to the area, and will give you a host of ideas about parties, restaurants, shopping and the like. There’s a real fondness for the Hamptons area found in the pages of this magazine, so if you read a few issues you’re sure to feel settled in before you even take possession of your rental home.
For a more comprehensive look at East Hampton, consider a tome dedicated to its history and beauty, such as “East Hampton: Long Island’s East End” by Ken Miller. This book offers a view of some East Hampton homes you’ll likely never see, as well as a look at the beauty and landscape of this area, which so many people call home and so many others call the perfect vacation spot.
Because East Hampton is all about shopping, eating and partying, a traditional travel book is unnecessary, but if you want a little help in getting around, pick up a copy of “ Streetwise East Hampton”, which will help you find that trendy new boutique or hot restaurant without wasting your expensive gas floundering around the streets of East Hampton.
