Sag Harbor isn’t just a year-round town located on the South Fork; Sag Harbor is most certainly a Hampton. It’s the location of some of the east end’s trendiest spots, and many a celebrity wouldn’t disagree.

Despite being deep into the Hamptons, Sag Harbor is actually not that much of a pain to get to. Sure, you have to share in the traffic suffering of those headed to Southampton, but a quick left turn on Shrubland Rd. will have you sailing through Shinnecock Hills Golf Club and on your way to Sag Harbor in no time.

Sag Harbor

As the most “family-friendly” Hampton, Sag Harbor is the place to go if you’re visiting with children. If you’re the kind of parent who’s into educational outings, the Whaling Museum is sure to wow the kids. On the other hand, if your idea of fun for the kids is loading up on treats and taking a jaunt through town, we’d recommend a stop at Buddhaberry.

With Hamptons kids come Hamptons adults, and Hamptons adults insist on fine dining. This Hampton emphatically delivers, with options across a variety of cuisines to suit almost every palate. For New American (likely the most prevalent type of restaurant in the Hamptons), our picks here are sister restaurants Beacon and Bell & Anchor. For consistently delicious Italian, our Sag Harbor go-to is Cappelletti.
