The Historic Village of Sag Harbor
The Hamptons - Eastern Long Island
In the middle of Long Island’s South Fork is the historic village of Sag Harbor. The drive from Manhattan is only about one and one-half hours so the area provides respite for many city dwellers who come here to enjoy the charm and natural beauty as well as great dining, shopping, and deepwater access for large boats.
Sag Harbor also has a thriving art scene, and the town’s annual Harborfest every September is just one of numerous popular cultural events held in the area.
