Memorial Day weekend draws ever closer, 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 #22: Stroll the Montauk Docks

Our seafood and seafaring culture are among the biggest draws on the East End, and right now we’ve got them all to ourselves. So take this opportunity, before Memorial Day weekend, to visit the Montauk docks and enjoy in the sites, sounds and smells (ok, maybe skip that last part).

As DansPapers.com reader Kathy Whittaker points out, a casual stroll along Gosman’s Dock could be just the ticket. This collection of restaurants and retail offers delicious fish to eat out or take home, and the dock itself provides lovely views of the sea and of local boats and fishing commerce at its finest. And the beach, with its awesomely long rock jetty, are steps away.

It’s all right at the end of West Lake Drive in Montauk. Get going before the summer crowds turn a peaceful experience into something else entirely.

Come back tomorrow for 50 Things to Do Before Memorial Day in the Hamptons #21.
