What to see
Drive out on the Montauk Highway to the Montauk Point Lighthouse, the country’s 4th oldest continually operating lighthouse located on Long Island’s eastern most point.
Pull over for lunch at the Lobster Roll. This 50 year-old institution is the place for lobster rolls, get there early to beat the rush, then choose between two types of sandwiches: the “classic” lobster roll or the hot buttered lobster roll.
Visit Sagaponack’s Madoo Conservancy, the two-acre private gardens (and the 18th- and 19th-century buildings-turned-studios) of deceased artist Robert Dash. Some highlights: the boxwood knot garden, the Pagoda-covered bridge, and brightly-painted garden structures that appear to grown out of the sea of green.
Make a stop at the Parrish Museum in Water Mill. The building, a pair of elongated wings made of poured concrete walls and topped with gabled, metal roofs that tuck into the gently rolling hills and stretch out across a meadow of wildflowers, is itself worthy of a visit, not to mention the collection of nearly 2,600 American paintings from the nineteenth-twenty-first centuries.
