Historic Village of East Hampton
East Hampton is a historic village offering visitors a glimpse to the past - majestic old elms, green expanses, windmills - of the English, not Dutch variety - and the famous Town Pond with its picturesque swans and a 300-year-old cemetery. Close by are many charming boutiques, antique shops, art galleries, and world-class restaurants and gourmet food shops. For the sports enthusiast there is world-class saltwater fishing, sailing, surfing, golf, tennis, hiking and horseback riding. And, of course, there are the beaches; the ocean beaches in the Hamptons are considered some of the most beautiful in the world, with mile after mile of pristine sand, dunes and pounding surf.
