The summer might be over but there is still a lot to do in The Hamptons, now a four season fun and interesting destination.
The weather was 64 degrees, sunny and flawless so why not hop on the quick ferry to Shelter Island and then another to Greenport on the North Fork for a day of outdoor fun.
First stop was Harbes Farm, 715 Sound Avenue in Mattituck. Plenty of activities for everyone from a pumpkin patch to an assortment of barnyard animals in the petting zoo to a winery. The shop sells pumpkins and just-picked seasonal veggies, homemade pickles and much more.
Right across the street is Patty's Berries & Bunches!
On to Hallock's Cider Mill at 1960 Main Road in Laurel.
Canoe Place Inn & Cottages has been a fixture on the East End since 1697. Located in the town of Southampton, the Hampton Bays waterside retreat is the site of the nation's oldest inn.
Now, renovated with every luxurious detail in mind--from well-appointed rooms and cottages, to a grand ballroom, beautifully landscaped grounds, access to charter yachts and all The Hamptons has to offer, a classic pool, spa and other amenities in mind--Canoe Place is ready for a new generation of posh travelers.
We recently visited the Good Ground Tavern for a delicious lunch. The venue features Mediterranean-infused takes on classic cuisine. The dining room offers a comfortable bar with access to an outdoor patio with seating. For more info: visit canoeplace.com or call 631.763.6300. Address: 239 E. Montauk Hwy, Hampton Bays, NY 11946
