There’s a reason New Yorkers like to escape to the Hamptons on summer weekends – with cute towns full of great restaurants and shops, beautiful houses and a soothing ocean breeze, there’s nothing like being at the very tip of the continent. The most important reason, however, is the beach (go figure). Coopers Beach in Southampton is consistently ranked the best, or at the very least in the top 10, beach in America.
Pack your bags with do the right thing smoothing body lotion SPF 15 ($12), rio bikini ($42) and getaway beach hat ($16). It’s nice not to be surrounded by concrete skyscrapers and a million people when the temperatures reach 90 – hit the beach instead!
