If you are headed out to the Hamptons next weekend; I have a LYSST of fun activities to do with the children. Yes, of course when we think of the Hamptons we think of the gorgeous beaches, the beautiful landscape and so much more. Here are a few of my favorite activities to do with the children next weekend that are fun and have a bit of adventure.
If your little ones want to be surfers, make sure to check out Flying Point Surf School in Sag Harbor. They provide private lessons by appointment for every member of the family at various locations in the South Fork.
Looking for a gorgeous child friendly beach? Take the kids to Coopers Beach in Southampton, which was named the best beach in the United States. There is a concession stand and miles and miles of beautiful sand. The kids will make new friends and mom and dad might even be able to catch a few waves together.
Shop for tots
