The Hamptons: The Luxury Destination The Hamptons are a group of villages that form the southern fork of Long Island. This aggregate of hamlets is one of the most interesting places in the island. The Hamptons can be swanky and wild, an utter contrast from the serenity of the North Fork. If you go to North Fork and then to South Fork, you will notice the striking difference between the ways of life in these two places. North Fork is known for its wineries and tranquil communities. On the other hand, the Hamptons are home to celebrities and socialites who have no qualms about spending too much money to stay at lavish Long Island hotels and mansions. During the summer months, the Hamptons become crowded with visitors, hotels become filled, and roads become congested. Tourists also seem to race to get to the bars and clubs. However, such vibrancy is lost when the summer heat wanes. The locals know more of the Hamptons than the mere bustle of the summer months. During the rest of the year, the Hamptons seem to return to their old, quiet state. This is what old locals know about. While the Hamptons are known for expensive dwellings, vacation houses, and hotels, they are also home to rural settings. There are different towns in the southern fork of Long Island. Some of the well- known towns are East Hampton, South Hampton, Sag Harbor, Bridgehampton, and Wainscott. The people of New York describe the Hamptons as the perfect summer getaway. People escaping the summer heat of the big metropolis find the hamlets of South Fork the ideal refuge. People who can afford the luxury Long Island hotel accommodations get the chance to see celebrities and may sometimes even be able to rub shoulders with them. More than just a summer getaway, the Hamptons also offer various weekend destination spots. A lot of tourists and locals agree that the landscapes and beaches of South Fork can be better appreciated anytime but during the peak tourist season. There are great beaches, antique shops, restaurants, and wineries. There are a lot of things that you can do. In other words, the Hamptons are not going to bore you so long as your budget permits. Getting to the Hamptons is not a tough affair, but the ride can be long if you are traveling straight from New York. East Hampton, for instance, is about 100 miles from New York City, a distance that can be covered for two and a half hours by automobiles during an off-peak season. People can board the Hampton Jitney from Manhattan. You can check the travel schedules of the Hampton Jitney online. It takes about two hours for a trip from Manhattan to the Hamptons. Other tourists may take the train. The Long Island Railway has several scheduled trips to the Hamptons, and a typical trip takes about three hours. Tour schedules are also available online. Wealthy visitors do escape the public transport systems to the Hamptons by riding on their private jets or boats. You must now fix all of the details of your trip to make things smooth, and go the way you planned it to. There is nothing more exasperating than having a bad dinner or spending hours touring the towns to find vacant hotels or houses for rent. Plan your trip wisely. Long Island Hotel Riverhead
