If you want to enjoy a break from the bustle of Manhattan, head to the Hamptons, the emblematic destination of the New York elite. Just a two-hour drive from the Big Apple, expect to be amazed by the wild beaches, second homes, one more beautiful than the other, and mansions belonging to some of the biggest movie stars and sports icons.
One comes to the Hamptons to relax, to enjoy the fresh air and the sea. Choose the charming village of Southampton, prized by the New York rich, with chic shops and gourmet restaurants as well as beautiful white sandy beaches. This destination's attractions are many: golf, jogging, sailboat trips, and deep-sea fishing. Otherwise, you could opt for East Hampton, with its typical villages and New England countryside.
