One of the hottest spots to go during the summer if you'r from or visiting NYC is the Hamptons. But trust me DONT GO IN THE SUMMMER!!!!!!!! i was born there and summered there every summer of my LIFE! (even though thats only 16 summers, hey!, i think i would know what im talking about about now) Its a beatiful town, or should i say towns, but this past summer ive never seen it that bad. There were sooooo many people and most of them are from the City and stupid. Not to mention the worst driving in the UNIVERSE...and thats an understatment. What a tourist trap in the Hamptons is the town in which you are visiting, the beaches, and the movie theathers on the weekends. Also if it happens to rain during the summer and your stuck in the Hamptons i highly suggest you DONT go into town...its swarming with tourists. Locals no better not to show their faces
Unique Suggestions: In East Hampton one of my favoirte places to go when im bored or just for kicks is Book Hampton. Its the local book shop. i love reading and they have a good seclection on different books to read. And if your into more eccentic and artsy, with an indian flare of style i DEMAND you go to Sag Harbor!! Its one of my favorite places to go because the main street is full of the coolest shops for all ages. Sag Harbor is so down to earth out of all the Hamptons you cant help but say, "aww what a great little place this is." You havent expericenced the true Hamptons until you at least walked down the main street in Sag Harbor. Its HONESTLY a place for all types and ages of people. Take this from a sixteen year old who enjoys book stores and Durer exhibits.
Fun Alternatives: Are you ready to get pampered?? Well my friends, Gurneys in Montauk which is only 20-30 minutes away depending on traffic is a fab joint to get that silk rap for your nails or a full body message. Not to mention that both the mens and womens sections in the Spa have AMAZING steam baths, sauna, a secret pool thats enclosed in a cave like cove with underwater light and a splendid water fall, andfor a finishing touch, a Roman salt water bath big enough to do your exercises. For only $25 for the "Spa" is quite a deal. But messages and things are extra. Never fear though, because if your on vacation you dont have to move very far or drive since Gurneys is a hotel and fancy resturant as well. Pretty neat huh.

Luggage and bags: It doesnt matter what kind of bags you have but people would definently check out your stuff. A good piece of advice to know is, when vacationing in The Hamptons, anyone who is anyone dresses and acts like they are someone. Now of course you dont have to listen to me, but if you want to be let into the high end clubs, or mingle with others from your opposite sex, trust me if you remember this one simple rule, you know everything you need to know...dress like success...
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Anything designer or something that resembles designer...if you dont own anything that designer i highly recommend that you pick up the latest copy of Vogue or Hamptons' Gotham and start taking what the women and men in those mags are...models, and use your traveling skills and adapt QUICK!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: In The Hamptons?!?! Please...even the servants quaters have the nicest possible toiletries from Paris or God knows where!
Photo Equipment: Ant camera will do..or you can do what the rich people do any hire your own personal staff of photographers...for just a coulple hundred bucks they'll get the job done..but why stop there?! ...for a few extra thousand they'll also be your personal slaves!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you like Camping the best place to go in The Hamptons is Ceder Point with out a doubt. Its a lot of fun and my friends from Germany and i used to rent out a camping spot for a night and have the best bon fires and walks on the beach. But if your a beachy kinda person there are so many beaches to choose from its all depending on your style. And beleive me, its not hard at all to find the nearest beach...all you have to do is follow all the traffic. You may think im joking but just you wait until you come to The Hamptons, you'll be regretting you didnt go to some seculded island in Fiji.
Miscellaneous: Everything is terribly expensive here...i think this is the only place where they serve an ice cream cone for $5 and a bottle of water for $3.

Autumn and spring, Montauk Rugby take to Herrick Field (its the baseball park right in the centre of town). For those unfamiliar with local conditions, the season breaks at the end of November as the winter is too severe for rugby!
I played in the autumn of 1978. Great way to get to know local people.
Equipment: For playing, all the usual stuff (including beer money). To watch, sunscreen in September; warm clothes in November!
