Our top 6 reasons to visit the Hamptons out of season


Early Spring is an excellent time to come to the Hamptons as a relaxing getaway. Here are our favorite reasons why:

1) If you enjoy seeing beyond the hedges at the big estates in the Hamptons, this is your chance. Most of those privet hedges are deciduous... which means that now they’re bare and won’t leaf in again in full until sometime in May. And chances are you’ll spot a few deer grazing on those estate lawns where no one is around to chase them away.

2)The trendy seasonal restaurants haven’t come to town yet, but our award-winning year-round places such as Plaza Cafe, Bistro Ete, 1770 House and Pierre's are open and won’t be crowded. (Now's your chance to get into Nick & Toni’s.)

3) Nope, there’s not a whole lot of nightlife, though you can catch a set at Steven Talkhouse or a concert at Bay Street Theater on weekends. And while the summer shops are still polishing their pop-up retail spots for the Memorial Day reopening, you can still check out some of our best, such as Hildreth’s, Rumrunner, Topiare and Sylvester’s for great household finds, or D.J Hart, J. McLaughlin, Chico's, Tenet or Jildor for clothing. Or, even better, check out off-season prices on consignment couture at Collette’s.

4) Bundle up and take a long walk on an empty beach, and pick out your fantasy beach house. Picture the parties you're going to have in it in the summer.

5) Oh, and wine! Nearly all of the wineries on both forks are open every day, all year. Without the crowds, it feels like you're having your own private tasting.

6) Most of all, the quiet season is a time to renew, recharge your batteries and most of all, reconnect. Has it been way too long since you've had the chance to look into each other’s eyes and really mean that “I love you?”
