Hamptons travel guide

4.1
Lighthouses · Dolphin & Whale Watching · Beaches
A historical summer retreat, the Hamptons is one of the United States' most expensive residential areas. The series of hamlets and villages in Southampton is known for its isolated charm and luxury. The small villages swell in population during the summer, as New York City's most recognizable residents escape here to frequent restaurants, retail outlets, and the colorful art community. Secluded mansions are interspersed with golf courses and tennis clubs, where socialites gather during daylight hours.
