Believe it or not, there’s a lot more you can do on a business trip besides work. All work and no play make Jack a dull boy; our Hamptons limo service specialists have worked with numerous business travelers over the years and have come to understand just how important it is to maintain a work-life balance on the road - it prevents burnout and minimizes feelings of homesickness. 

We have, therefore, come up a with a list of some sites you can visit on your downtime the next time you are on business in the Hamptons.

For even more convenience and relaxation, we recommend employing the services of a reputable car service like our Hamptons NYC car Service for any, and all of the following tours. Forgo conventional means of transportation and enjoy a ride in one of our luxurious vehicles, revel in our lavish amenities, and relax with the comfort of knowing that a trained professional is behind the wheel. The following are some of the best sites to visit on your Hamptons business trip. Enjoy!

LongHouse Reserve

You will find the LongHouse Reserve along Hands Creek Road in East Hamptons. Here you will get to enjoy 16 acres of gardens adorned with outdoor art installations and sculptures for only $10. Head over to Peter’s Pond and enjoy sites of lotus plants and water lilies gently floating on the water and, if you’re lucky, you may even spot a few creatures at the pond, including turtles and bullfrogs. From there, visit the beautiful Red Garden, designed by none other than Jack Lenor Larsen, the reserve’s founder. You also don’t want to miss out on Yoko Ono’s giant chess game sculpture famously known as ‘Play it by Trust’. The sculpture derives its name from the fact that it is made entirely of white playing pieces. Creative, right?

Pollock-Krasner House

Jackson Pollock and his wife Lee Krasner purchased the house in 1945 with money they obtained as a loan from renowned art collector Peggy Guggenheim. The house stands along Springs Fireplace Road in East Hamptons. The house is, however, now a museum where visitors can drop by to see where the couple lived. Much of its original furniture is still in place and the small barn they converted into a studio has been maintained in its original state to date. General admissions go for only $5 per head while guided tours can be reserved for only $10 per hour.

Stephen Talkhouse

This iconic music venue is located along Main Street in Amagansett; a 6-minute drive from East Hamptons. The Stephen Talkhouse is one of the Hamptons original nightspots and finds its roots all the way back in 1970. The venue has hosted virtually every musical artist from The Rolling Stones to Crosby, Stills & Nash to Van Morrison, and the historic scene continues to showcase modern-day musical talent. Visit their website and schedule a visit for a day when one of your favorite artists is scheduled to play or any artist at all; merely being in this iconic venue is an experience in itself.
