If you’re lucky enough to cozy up in the Hamptons this Fall, why not embrace the outdoors and take part in all the classic, seasonal activities you always say you’re going to do, but never quite get around to. If you’re looking for inspiration, scroll through the list below to see what you can do before it’s seriously too cold to venture outside.
WÖLFFER ESTATE VINEYARD

If you haven’t visited Wölffer Estate Vineyard, do yourself a favor and go! Seriously, where have you been spending your weekends? But, even for those of us who know their wines well, the Estate’s Candlelight Fridays are something we could never tire of. Every Friday evening, stop by the tasting room to hear your favorite local musicians play as you sip on new wines and ciders, as well as special Fall cocktails. I’ll raise a glass to that!

Who says colder weather means gardening season has to end? Certainly not those at Marders in Bridgehampton. With events happening throughout the Fall, stop by the 40-acre site so you can talk dirt all season long- garden dirt that is!

Everyone knows Stephen Talkhouse is the place to be seen while summering in the Hamptons, but we’re here to tell you the fun doesn’t have to stop just because the summer season did. Don’t miss out on Trivia Nights and constant live music as, in the words of manager Peter Honerkamp, you keep this “endless roaring party rag[ing].”

AMBER WAVES FARM
Odds are you’ve heard of Amber Waves Farm and their delicious market and cafe, but did you know this place also offers a Learning Lab Series? Learn how to bake bread, make pasta from scratch, and even make a gorgeous, seasonal bouquet from the farm’s own dried flowers! And, if your own cooking doesn’t quite work out, you can pick up something from the market on your way out – who’s to know??

Embrace the outdoors and head over to Longhouse Reserve. Simply stroll the 16-acre reserve and sculpture garden or take part in some of their seasonal events. From Forest Bathing on Sunday’s to live jazz on Thursday’s to meditation on Saturdays, trust me when I say this place has something for everyone!

Lose yourself (literally) in the spirit of the season as you wander through the eight-acre corn maze at Fairview Farm. With approximately two miles of paths, not only will you check off a classic Fall activity, but you’ll also get your steps in. Plus, reward yourself once you find your way out of the maze by picking up a delicious seasonal pie from their farmstand- you deserve it!

Plant and bring home bulbs with Summerhill Landscapes, participate in a hunt for holiday recipes, create bird feeders, and more all while sipping on hot ciders and other seasonal refreshments! Don’t worry though, even if you miss the Open House you can still attend the plenty of other events on their calendar and continue to celebrate the Fall all season long!
