20 Best Beaches In The US You *Need* To Vacation On
East Hampton, New York
Fans of Gossip Girl and celebrity news have likely heard of the mythical Hamptons, a beach getaway only two hours from Manhattan by car and easily accessible by the Hampton Jitney in the summertime. While there is a case to be made for the less-populous Southampton, East Hampton is the place to be for celeb sighting, white sand, and sprawling mansions, and the city itself *finally* has Uber to make your stay even easier. Main Beach doesn’t require a pesky parking permit for the casual visitor, and it’s only a 25-minute walk from the city’s upscale, almost-quaint downtown shopping area. If you can find a town-resident permit, Indian Wells is a local gem that features a shaved ice truck for true summertime bliss.
