Montauk is a relaxing and enjoyable destination.  Stay at a motel right in town, or enoy a stay at one on the Old Montauk Highway. Both locations  are in close proximity to the ocean.   During the day,  take advantage of  all  that Montauk's natural environment  offers. Spend the day at the beach or  grab  a boogey board, surfboard, paddle-board, or kayak and spend it on the water. Then if you are looking to take a little break  go to Nick's, a restaurant / bar in town right on the beach. They have music and food.

If it's cool or you are not a beach lover, rent a bike and enjoy the many bike trails available in Montauk, or  go to Deep Hollow Ranch and join other horse lovers for a trail ride on the beach.  The beach below the Montauk Lighthouse provides a wonderful opportunity  for children of all ages to explore local marine life particularly when  there are tidal pools  to explore.

Montauk is known for its fishing. Consider a half day trip on one of the many party boats  that call Montauk home  or  consider surf-casting off  the beach or off the pier at  Edward Ecker Park. Montauk has two tackle shops that can assist the novice get started.

In late  afternoon or early evening, drive about five minutes down the road and  visit the  harbor area. At the jetties,  it is possible to watch  a parade of boats of all shapes and sizes  enter and exit the harbor.   If you are  hungry, enjoy dinner at one of  several  good restaurants in the area.  Gosman's Dock offers  is a little bit of shopping, and on some Sunday nights, a free concert. Visit the commercial dock and  watch the  fishermen unloading their catch, or walk along the dock of the Montauk Yacht Club to see the many yachts that call Montauk home for a day, a week, or a season.

Navy Road and Duryea's Dock both  are great spots  to catch the sunset!  Montauk has BEAUTIFUL sunsets. Missing tomorow's weather-forecast with all the time spent  in the outdoors? No worries! Just remember, "Red sky at night, sailor's delight; red sky in the morning sailor's take warning."

At night  everyone has fires on the ocean beach. Make sure to secure a good spot around 7:30 or 8:00pm. or just join someone else's fire. Good way to meet people and have a good time.  Take a walk around the town, and if you have kids don't forget to take them to the store "A little bit of everything."  They will love it. The store has lots of fun little gadgets and sand toys.If you or your kids have a sweet tooth, there's a quaint candy shop in town, as well as, an ice cream spot with flavors of all kinds.

Don't leave Montauk without a visit to one of the oldest landmarks in the USA, the  Montauk Lighthouse. On a clear day, the view from the top of the light makes the walk up the tower well worth it. Also consider checking  out  two new gems in  town, the Montauk Brewing Company, a microbrewery  recently opened by a some Montauk "locals" and Montauk Shellfish Company, Montauk’s very first oyster farm: Montauk Pearls. Montauk  Brewery  is located in a red barn building on Erie Ave near Hank Zebrowski Baseball Field.
