7 Things to do During Montauks Winter Months

Have a few days to get away this off season? Don't know where to go? Take advantage of our fall specials, and come check out these "to-do's" in our quaint little town of Montauk, NY. 

#1 - Explore Montauk Town & Harbor: 

During the summer months, Montauk town is a mad house. People are littering the beaches and the harbor. Exploring is difficult when it takes 30 minutes to pick up your egg sandwich in the morning. Visiting Montauk in the off-season allows you to take your time strolling through town. If it's December, grab a coffee and check out the holiday decorations provided by yours truly. For the last 25 years, you could've caught one of the Daunt's decorating and lighting of all of the mini-Christmas tree's lining the town.

What can we say, we truly value the holidays and love a little holiday spirit. We also have a full personal holiday display in our office. Feel free to check it out! (I guess you can say for us, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year.)

#2 - Attend Events in the Area

The Montauk Chamber of Commerce is really great at keeping us all up to date with events going on year-round in Montauk. Feel free to take advantage of these events with family and friends! (See link below for more information.)

#3 - Visit Montauk Point Lighthouse

The oldest lighthouse in all of New York State resides on the Eastern most tip of long island, Montauk. The Montauk lighthouse, once commissioned by George Washington, includes trails to hike around the grounds, and offers a great amount of history. 

#4 - Check out the puzzling grounds of "Camp Hero"

Camp hero is a historic Army/Airforce Base located just before the Lighthouse. There are countless mixed reviews about this mysterious place. Some people believe it is still active, others believe that is just a myth the locals spread to scare away the tourists. Explore the old homes, grounds and bunkers and decide for yourself.

#5 - Sunrises and Sunsets 

Of course you can watch these beautiful phenomenons from anywhere in the world, but we promise they will not be as beautiful as they are in Montauk. Montauk is known to be one of the most beautiful places on the island to catch a sunrise or sunset. And in the off season the sun rises later (for all of you night owls), and sets earlier (for all of you early birds!) They also tend to be even more beautiful this time of year.  Spoiler alert: Catch the sunrise from the beach 100' from our doors! (Photos above)

#6 - Bundle up and Hike the Trails

Just because it is colder, doesn't mean that the beautiful off-the-grid trails are off limits. Sometimes the winter time is the best time to explore the incredible nature Montauk has to offer. Wear some extra layers and check out Shadmoore state Park, or the Seal Haut Trail, both located off Rt. 27 heading East. 

#7 - Try Something New

Drop into any of our classes at Ideal Living Studio (located on premises) for $10.
