10 Rainy Day Hamptons Pastimes

Samantha Yanks | June 7, 2013 | Style & Beauty

1 - 10 Rainy Day Hamptons Pastimes
Number four on my list: ice cream at Bridgehampton Candy Kitchen (this is their watermelon flavor—yum)

1. See a Movie: Blockbusters like Star Trek Into Darkness and Iron Man 3 are at UA Southampton 4 Theatre and UA Hamptons 5, but there are some great indie gems—like Mud, starring Matthew McConnaughey and Reese Witherspoon—playing at Sag Harbor Cinema. visit for times and locations

2. Visit a Museum: Children's Museum of the East End and The Sag Harbor Whaling Museum are great if you have kids.

3. Read: Stop by the public libraries in East Hampton, Bridgehampton, and Westhampton. Check their calendars for great kids events and storytimes, too. For a permanent addition to your at-home library or coffee-table, pick up Kelly Killoren Bensimon's In the Spirit of the Hamptons at BookHampton.

4. Ice Cream Run: Yummylicious in Sag Harbor, Bridgehampton Candy Kitchen, The Fudge Company in Southampton, Scoop du Jour in East Hampton, Bay Burger in Sag Harbor, and Sylvester & Co. in Sag Harbor serve my favorite scoops.

5. Gallery Hop: There's much to see (and ponder) at Gallery Valentine, Tripoli Gallery, Vered, The Drawing Room, Eric Firestone Gallery, and Silas Marder.

6. See the New Parrish: Visit the newly opened Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill and have a seasonal lunch and a glass of wine in its Art of Eating Café.

7. Eat Out: Some of the best new spots of the season are Topping Rose House, Delmonico's of Southampton, BLT Steak, Fresh, Madison & Main, The Cuddy, and The Smile at Ruschmeyer's.

8. Eat In: Pick up prepared food and pitch a picnic in the living room. Loaves & Fishes, Goldberg's Famous (for bagels and lox), and Pepalajefa always have what I'm looking for. I also love The Milk Pail Farm for homemade apple cider donuts and pies, Mecox Bay Dairy cheese, Mary's Marvelous granola, and fresh eggs from Rogers' Farm.

9. Go Antiquing: There's no telling what you'll find at Laurin Copen Antiques, Mecox Gardens, English Country Antiques, Black Swan Antiques, and Nellie's of Amagansett.

10. Exercise: Take your pick: indoor cycling at Flywheel Sports, a 50-minute workout at SLT, hot yoga at POE, Tracy Anderson's method, Core Fusion at Exhale, Mary Ann Browning's Browning's Fitness.
