White Fences Inn Owner Liz Brodar Tells Why Now is the Time for a Hamptons Trip

White Fences Inn Owners Liz and Eric Brodar

Off-season is actually one of the best times of year to explore all the Hamptons have to offer and people don’t realize everything there is to do with an overnight escape that’s just a short drive away.

While most people think of the Hamptons as a summer-exclusive destination, there’s an abundance of things to do and take advantage of during the late winter and early spring, especially before vacationers start flocking to Long Island in May. Liz Brodar, owner of White Fences Inn, a luxury bed & breakfast in Water Mill, explains that now is the time to venture to the Hamptons when prices are lower, crazy crowds aren’t congesting roads and venues and it’s the ideal to take in the beauty and nature of the South Fork.

“Summer and the Hamptons go hand-in-hand with each other and many think the area shuts down after Labor Day,” Brodar says. “Off-season is actually one of the best times of year to explore all the Hamptons have to offer and people don’t realize everything there is to do with an overnight escape that’s just a short drive away.”

The LIZ LIST - Her Top 10 Recommendations:

2.    BREATHE IN THE SEA AIR: Take a peaceful walk along the ocean on Flying Point Beach and Cooper’s Beach
3.    SWEAT NOW, INDULGE LATER: We’ve got amazing exercise studios out here… Work up a sweat at Tracy Anderson Method Studio, SoulCycle, or Physique 57

“The Hamptons are a beautiful place to experience, no matter the time of year,” Brodar says. “Why not visit when you can enjoy everything at your own pace, without the hustle a bustle of the summer?”
