Whether you plan on taking a quick weekend getaway or want to enjoy an extended stay for the season, discover the best things to do out East this spring below with a roundup of activities and events.
Stand up paddleboarding is the way to get fit while enjoying the tranquility and fun of the water, which Paddle Diva well knows. That’s why they offer an indoor BOGA Fit Mat class every Wednesday at Gurney’s Montauk for an effective floating workout. It’s more than just an exercise class, though, it’s also an adventure that challenges your body and helps you build confidence in the water. 219 Three Mile Harbor HC Road, East Hampton, 329-2999
Get ready to start the summer season off on the right foot by taking a second to focus on your wellbeing before it even starts during Hamptons Wellness Week. The all-inclusive week-long event (June 11-18) helps you discover healthy experiences and wellness opportunities across the East End that include massages, meditation, yoga, cross-fit, nutrition, facials, and even parent coaching.
With many exhibitions, live performances, and screenings happening at this East Hampton arts and entertainment center, there’s something to keep you busy and entertained almost every night. We’re particularly excited for the American premiere of the award-winning play Angry Young Man by Ben Woolf (May 31-June 18) where the audience experiences the show while seated on the stage. The John Drew Theater at Guild Hall, 158 Main St., East Hampton, 324-4050
Have a special occasion coming up this spring or just want the quintessential Hamptons experience? Leave it to the party experts of Hampton Clambake, sister company to Food & Co and Bay Kitchen Bar. Be amazed as they prepare everything right before your eyes out on the beach with a perfect East End sunset as the backdrop. They provide everything from the food (lobster, shrimp, oysters, even BBQ) to the linens, tiki torches, tables, and more for a memorable event. 39 Gann Road, 324-8620
Southampton’s Mexican hotspot Union Cantina is offering a bevy of specials and entertainment every night of the week this spring. Get yourself over the midweek hump with Wine Down Wednesdays featuring both sangria and wine. But we’re also feeling Margarita Mondays as the weather gets warmer and al fresco dining becomes more appropriate. The live music every Friday beginning at 9:30 p.m. is not to be missed either. 40 Bowden Sq., Southampton, 377-3500
All the comedy fans out there can see their favorite comedians live during one of the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor’s Comedy Club Saturdays (May 27, July 1, and August 25). Highlights include Colin Jost from Saturday Night Live (July 1). Previous seasons have included acts by other big time stars like Amy Schumer. 1 Bay St., Sag Harbor, 725-9500
