Luxury Weekend Getaway To The Hamptons
My stay at the Roundtree Amagansett was compensated. My views and opinion of the location and accommodation are authentically my own.
Hi babes from The Hamptons! This is my first time visiting and I am so excited to explore and bring you along with me.
I am spending the weekend in Amagansett in East Hampton a short 2.5 hour drive from New York City. The East Hampton town includes part of Sag Harbor, East Hampton village, Amagansett, and Montauk to name a few. Visiting here gives you access to nice beaches, casual and upscale dining, art galleries, social clubs and tons of boutiques!
I highly recommend Amagansett and/or the East Hampton village for the ultimate Hamptons experience. In the summer, Main Beach is always a great option to relax, there’s tons of great fitness studios in town like Barry’s Bootcamp or Soul Cycle.
During my trip I decided to check out local thrift shops, boutiques and really take in the sights and sounds of the area.
How To Get To The Hamptons From NYC
Once you’re in town! Here’s how to get around.
Locally you could use Uber or Hamptons cab mainstays like Lindy’s and Carlos Taxi. The Free Ride offers open-air rides in an electric shuttle at various locations between East Hampton town and Main Beach (free; 9 a.m. to at least 6 p.m.).
How about a bike? You can rent a bike from Bermuda Bikes in East Hampton (from $35 for an 8-hour day) or the Amagansett Beach and Bicycle Company offers tandems and kid’s cruisers (from $19/hour and $39/day).

How cute is the room key?
