I have always wondered what makes us like certain places more than others. With my decision to move, I wondered why I felt like Las Vegas would be a better fit. I finally figured out that we are all looking for a place and lifestyle that agrees with our idea state of mind. For me, this combines luxury with a laid back/carefree lifestyle, which I hope to find in Vegas.
Many people from New York City consider East Hampton their idea of a good time because they like the combination of small town peacefulness with their high luxury life. I made my boyfriend take me to the Hamptons this past weekend because I had to see for myself this miniature utopia. I can see why people love it! If you have the money for a nice house and the life that comes with it, you can spend your summers socializing with your friends while enjoying the clean air, dining at fancy restaurants, relaxing at a clean, beautiful beach, and shopping at one-of-a-kind stores. “Escaping” is one of the main reasons people go to the Hamptons, but, with everyone else finding out what a gem it is (myself too), it is becoming crowded and is probably not what it once was. This is why I believe in being your own person and figuring out what you love; that way, there will be no crowds!
I was curious of the history of East Hampton, and was glad to find the site www.easthampton.com for information. It does a great job of explaining the allure that this tiny town has on so many people.
