Magical Montauk

Montauk is a magical place that lures anyone with an affinity for the sea. It feels like an island unto itself, but is easy to reach. Just keep driving east until you get there. This is a quaint beach town with something fun for everyone at any age. It has all the Hamptons allure without the attitude. Hike the nature trails, crawl the pubs and souvenir shops, stroll the beaches, surf the waves or fish the surf. Miniature golf and a local fast food joint will please the youngsters, and a visit to the Lighthouse, commissioned by President George Washington, will remind you that the Hamptons began as a seafaring community.

Be sure to notice the Memory Motel, referenced by the Rolling Stones in their song of the same name. This is a renowned rock bar that features live music on weekends between June and October.
