Long Island’s East End can be a fantastic place to spend time during the summer, even for those who can’t afford to buy that dream vacation home in the Hamptons.
While internationally known as a playground for the rich and famous, The Hamptons are also legendary summer retreat offering plenty of family friendly attractions for Long Islanders looking for a day trip or weekend staycation.

Their stories reveal a lot about the possibilities and the pitfalls of hosting travelers here.
