Best known for its history of world-class riding events and well-known shops and restaurants, Bridgehampton is the home of luxury real estate in the Hamptons.
Cultural Sites & Landmarks
Besides its famous historical race track, which closed in 1999, other things to check out in Bridgehampton are the Channing Daughters Winery, the Bridgehampton Commons Shopping Center, and the area’s stunning, yet understated beach scene (Ocean Road and Mecox Beach are most well known). For a more cultural experience, be sure to visit the Dan Flavin Art Institute, the South Fork Natural History Museum, and for younger guests, the Children’s Museum of the East End.
Dining & Nightlife
Pierre’s a French bistro, serves classics along with local seafood, and is a “classic go-to” in Bridgehampton. World Pie is a gourmet thin-crust pizzeria located in a low-key storefront, and Candy Kitchen offers homemade ice cream, as well as the typical American breakfast to residents and tourists alike.
The most direct way to get to Bridgehampton from Manhattan is out of Penn Station, where it is a stop on the LIRR. Other options include traveling via bus (the Hampton Jitney, Hampton Ambassador, and the Hampton Luxury Liner all depart from NYC); or if you’re feeling something a little more exclusive, there’s always the option of flying in via helicopter through BLADE.
