While the Hamptons may have more flash, Montauk, at the far eastern end of Long Island, has traditionally been the laid back, surf spot. For your bachelorette party, you can rent a house, stay in one of the many upgraded shack hotels or do what we're doing this weekend and stay at the Montauk Yacht Club.
The 80-year old storied hotel, that has hosted guests including the Astors, Vanderbilts and Morgans, recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation. The rooms have a nautical theme, along with modern touches like flat screen TVS and iPod docks.
The restaurants got an upgrade, too. We hear there's a great cover band on most weekend nights during the summer and that the servers are super-friendly, if not super fast--hey, it's a beach resort.
During the days, we plan to lie out by the pool. If you're more adventurous or motivated, the hotel can arrange a group surf class for you and your girlfriends. On Saturday, we're braving the traffic to head to the Ferrari Rally and Polo Match--we couldn't decide between Italians and Argentinians, so we're attempting to hit both events!
