Spring is Here in the Hamptons!

No Place Like the Hamptons

Discover what makes the Hamptons a must-visit location all year round. 

Calling the Hamptons home, Dayton Ritz + Osborne knows how splendid this area is, not just in the summer, but in every season.

For decades, the Hamptons have been home to ocean breezes, white sand beaches, excellent seafood, lively parties, the rural atmosphere of Long Island’s South Fork, and a few celebrity sightings. Dayton Ritz + Osborne have had their roots in the Hamptons for almost 150 years, cementing their history and understanding of the region’s needs when it comes to protecting locals’ homes, automobiles, luxury items, and more. 

We know a thing or two about the Hamptons, especially what makes this area special, what to do in the winter months, and how to kick the season off in the spring!

Kick off the 2023 Season!

Although Memorial Day weekend marks the official start of summer, March is widely regarded as the true start of the season. Longer, lighter days, warmer weather, and St. Patrick’s Day parades entice visitors to return to Long Island’s beaches and attractions. Here’s a list of things to do in the Hamptons and in the East End this spring:

    • St. Patrick’s Day Parade —  Westhampton Beach’s St. Patrick’s Day parade on Main Street embraces the community, with local organizations and businesses competing for the best parade float. But the big draw is the Montauk Parade, known as the “second-largest parade” in New York — a raucous party bar hop around Montauk eating and drinking establishments.
  • Southampton Ice Rink — Featuring a refrigerated ice rink, driving range, mini-golf, darts, and billiards, Southampton Ice Rink offers something for everyone.
  • Breweries — Local breweries begin opening their taprooms and extending hours come spring. Greenport Harbor Brewing Company, Jamesport Farm Brewery, Westhampton Beach Brewing Company, and Southampton Publick House are just a few spots to check out in the Hamptons. The openings feature an array of food trucks, live music, events, and more.
    • Wineries — Nothing quite says Hamptons like an afternoon in the sun, relaxing with a glass of wine. Look for such stellar wineries as Wölffer Estate Vineyards in Sagaponack, Sparkling Pointe in North Fork, Raphael in Peconic, and Martha Clara Vineyards in Riverhead, all complete with exceptional blends, live music, ambiance, trivia contests, and more.
  • Theater and Live Music — Experience art exhibits and live theater performances at Guild Hall in East Hampton. Rock out at Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center, which hosts mainstream comedians and musical acts. Finally, for all you theater lovers, the venerable Bay Street Theater & Sag Harbor Center for the Arts, on Long Wharf in Sag Harbor, offers movies and live events.

While there are many ways to kick off the perfect Hamptons season, having all that knowing that your home and everything in it is protected gives you peace of mind. That’s where DRO can help.
