There are less than 50 days left until Memorial Day weekend, and while we at Dan’s Papers can’t wait, we also know there are many things we have to squeeze in during the next few weeks on the East End, lest we lose our chance with all that summer brings. We know that if we don’t get out and do these now, we’ll have to wait until after Labor Day before we try again…and so will you!

We continue our countdown of things to do before Memorial Day weekend on the East End with #45: Get Your Beach Pass

Depending on where you live in the Hamptons, there are a few different ways and places to get a beach parking sticker, and different proofs of residency to be shown. At some beaches a summer pass can be purchased at the booth right when you drive in. But what if you don’t have a stack of addressed utility bills and a copy of your lease in your glovebox?  If your paperwork is not in order when you get to the beach, prepare to head back home—or to pay for a daily non-resident permit that you really shouldn’t need.

For residents, now is the time to go to your local village hall or town parks office to get your parking sticker.

No one wants to arrive at the beach on a beautiful day, sit in a line of cars, and go through these headaches. Prepared residents can drive right by the line and get a sweet parking spot.

Come back tomorrow for 50 Things to Do Before Memorial Day #44.
