Things To Do In And Around the Hamptons During Fall


When most people think of the Hamptons, they imagine a summertime frenzy. However, take it from our Hamptons limo service, which has been in operation in the area for several years now, fall is the season to look out for. 

This is the most beautiful time of the year in the Hamptons; vineyards are in full bloom, farmers are harvesting their crops, and the approach of major events such as Halloween and Thanksgiving Day is reviving some annual traditions, for instance, the lighting of Montauk Lighthouse. 

To guarantee that your fall season is as eventful as possible, we have put together a number of sceneries, dining locales, and getaways you can check out in the Hamptons this fall.

We recommend contracting the services of our Hamptons NYC car service for all your transportation needs on all your season escapades. Fall is a time to seat back, relax, take in all the beauty around you and, most importantly, spend quality time with your loved ones. 

As such, you may let a trusted professional take the wheel as you focus all your attention on your family and friends while you are safely transferred to and from any one of these amazing locations.

Scenery

Quogue Wildlife Refuge

If you enjoy hiking and sprawling natural spaces, then this is just for you. You will find Quogue Wildlife Refuge along Old County Road in Quogue. 

Whichever trail you choose, you are likely to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage as well as a variety of wildlife, including owls, eagles, falcons and bobcats.

Hank’s Pumpkintown

As the name suggests, Hank’s Pumpkintown is a Pumpkin Patch located in Water Mill, open every day between 9 am and 6 pm. This popular location is adorned with pumpkin patches of all shapes and sizes. Enjoy some pumpkin spiced coffee, pumpkin doughnuts, and many other pumpkin flavored delicacies. 

You will also find a corn shack where you can enjoy a roasted and seasoned corn. For an even richer fall season experience, visitors get to take part in apple picking, hayrides, tractor rides, and a corn maze.

The Montauk Lighthouse

One of the most prominent reminders that fall has arrived in the Hamptons is the annual lighting of the Montauk Lighthouse, also known as ‘The Light’. The Montauk Lighthouse was initially commissioned by the United States Congress during George Washington’s presidency and completed in 1796. 

The lighting ceremony this year will take place on the 30th of November and you don’t want to miss out on this glorious occasion.

Wolffer Estate Vineyard

The Wolffer Estate Vineyard is located along Sagg Road in Sagaponack. If you are a wine-lover, this 55-acre expanse is a must-visit around fall. During this time of year, the winery offers visitors an elegant collection of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Chardonnay as well as Rose, White Cider, and Riesling. 

We recommend planning your visit around the annual harvest party that has been scheduled for the 12th of October this year. Tag the entire family along on this day and enjoy an entire day of barrel rolling, grape stomping, live music, cider, and wine.

Eateries

Nick and Toni’s

Located along North Main Street in East Hampton, this eatery offers visitors a scenic space during fall as the leaves begin to change. 

The restaurant is also known for its celebrity clientele and wood-burning ovens, which will keep you intrigued and satisfied as you watch your food get prepared in a semi-traditional fashion. 

You will especially enjoy their popular thin-crust pizza. You may also want to try their guanciale, broccoli rabe, roasted garlic, sweet sausage, provolone, and fresh mozzarella while you are here.

Rowdy Hall

Also located in East Hampton, you will find Rowdy Hall along Main Street in East Hampton. This is a casual tavern that exudes a warmth through-and-through. 

Here you will find dark-wood floors, lantern light sconces, beams across the ceiling, and a fireplace in the middle of the dining room in case it gets a little chilly during your visit. 

We recommend trying their onion French soup with an opulent meat broth as well as their butternut squash lasagna and gruyere cheese with sundried tomato vinaigrette.
