We have experienced the Hamptons both in the winter and in the summer and it’s always a great way to get away from the busy city life. Especially Sag Harbor has its very own calming vibe that we really enjoyed the most. The small town is over 300 years old  and offers lots of greenspace, beach and the ocean.

During the day trip you’re riding on a bus with air condition and wifi. The tour bus to the Hamptons picks you up on 46th and 8th Avenue at 7 AM sharp.

Riverhead & Cooper’s Beach

Day trip to the Hamptons from New YorkThe first stop of the day trip to the Hamptons from NYC was Riverhead where we had a quick breakfast. From there the bus took us to the charming town of Southampton. We stopped at Coopers Beach for a quick 20-minute beach break before we headed towards Meadow Lane. This impressive street is known for its expensive houses and mansions of local residents.

Of course there is no Hamptons trip without a wine tasting. Before we headed further into the Hamptons we stopped at a local winery to try some of their delicious wines.


During our stop in Southampton we spend 30 minutes exploring the area. This small town is probably exactly what you would expect from the Hamptons. Cute, small coffee shops, boutiques and restaurants that have been there forever welcoming their  visitors with a magical charme.

Next stop: Sag Harbor

One of our favorite stops during the tour was Sag Harbor. We spent an hour to explore the area and had great lunch at “The Dock House”. A local spot that  you have to try, when you love seafood.

Shopping at Tanger Outlets

Daytrip-to-the-hamptons Tanger OutletsIt took us almost an hour to get to Tanger Outlets from Sag Harbor where we spent the rest of the time of our tour. Tanger Outlets in Long Island are great for shopping. You can find brands like Nike, Hugo Boss, Victoria’s Secret, Puma, Diesel, Levis, Lacoste, UGG, Michael Kors and many more. After  another 2 hours there, we headed back to the city where the bus dropped us off at the same location at 7 PM.

Is a day trip to the Hamptons worth it?

The day trip from NYC to the Hamptons was well organized vom start to finish. It’s the perfect experience for travelers who like  taking guided tours and don’t want to be on their own. Of course, since the stops are limited in time, you only get to see a sneak peak of the Hamptons.
