It is possible to go to the Hamptons and see regular people, not just celebrities. This is especially true in Springs, located on the bay side of East Hampton. Springs is known for having a much more rural, laid-back community vibe. It was this vibe that drew artist Jackson Pollock here back in 1945. Although the years have brought change, Springs still remains a more affordable, low key Hamptons destination.
Springs is a small town, so things to do are somewhat limited, but this is also part of its charm. It's on a peninsula stretching north from East Hampton, there are harbor beaches and marinas, but the nearest ocean beaches are only a short drive away.
With not much of a Main Street or downtown, Springs General Store makes a central point as does Ashawagh Hall, where art events and live music are always being held. There's a weekend farmers market near Parsons Blacksmith Shop, which offers demonstrations on their metalwork.
A quick walk or cycle will take you to Pollock's old home, the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, now a museum with tours of the house, his studio, and the grounds. Many other writers and artists have been drawn to Springs over the years including Nora Ephron, Kurt Vonnegut, and Joseph Heller.
There are only a handful of restaurants in Springs, but the menus won't disappoint.
Summer of course, but also Fall when the crowds nearby leave and the changing leaves are beautiful.
