48-Hours in East Hampton Travel Guide

Our seventh (?) annual East Hampton girls’ trip was this past weekend.

If you’ve been following me for the past six years, then you know that Michelle, Giorgia, and I are creatures of habit, and we rarely do anything different each summer.

This is always my favorite trip and I look forward to it all year long! There is just something about a girl’s trip to the beach with some of your oldest friends.

Every year we laugh, cry and stay up too late watching crappy tv and talking.

This weekend trip is always one of my most cherished weekends and I hope to do it for the rest of forever.

So here it goes:

Friday night we drove out east. We picked up dinner and alcohol on the way. This time we decided a charcuterie board with wine and fruit was a quick, easy and pretty meal for the hungry folk after a three hour drive.

Saturday, we slept in, and we were disappointed to see the 70-degree temperature on the thermometer and the overcast sky.

So, we sat around, had a long breakfast, played cards and Apples to Apples before deciding to venture to Sag Harbor and get donuts. The donuts from Grindstone were subpar in my opinion. Honestly 4/10, but the views while eating the donuts were 8/10.

We returned to Michelle’s house and sat around the pool, and made really delicious margaritas (1 cup tequila, 1 cup lime juice, 6 cups of ice in the blender=perfect summer drink!)

We then popped open our double bottle of Prosecco and Aperol and made my favorite summer drink: Aperol spritz, before getting ready to go to dinner at Harbor Bistro. (And of course, take our annual family photo!)

For the past couple of years we’ve gone to Harbor Bistro because it is very reasonably priced, the food is delicious, and it is within walking distance to Michelle’s house.

For dinner we had my favorite appetizer: fried calamari. I then had my favorite dish: scallops topped with a French 75 in my hand.

And then we drunk walked home to Michelle’s house before getting in the hot tub.

The stars are so pretty out east. There is no ground light, so the sky really lights up! Make sure you look up at the stars when you’re out in the Hamptons.

On Sunday, we got up and were shocked again by the cloudy weather. But we got bagels from Goldberg’s before Michelle convinced us to go to the beach. She had a feeling the weather would be nice. 

Well, we drove to the beach, the weather was not great. I was in a quarter zip sweatshirt, but the clouds cleared eventually, and the very hot sun came out for a couple of hours. I eventually stripped off all my layers to reveal my bikini and lathered on my sunscreen.

I got a little bit of color from the sun until the sun tucked behind the clouds once more, and a long sleeve shirt was required to keep me warm.

It was our sign to head back to Michelle’s. 

We were welcomed back to dinner on the deck with pulled pork and barbeque sides.

We left the Hamptons after dinner, eager to return back next year.
