Memorial Day (Monday, May 30) and the official start of the East End’s busy summer season is around the corner, so now’s the time to take advantage of all the special things that will be nonexistent or difficult to enjoy in the Hamptons once the crowds arrive from points west.
We continue our countdown of 20 things to do before Memorial Day in the Hamptons with:
#11: Get Your Car Coiffed for the Summer
You may have a brand new car, you may have a hand-me-down or you may have a sturdy oldie from the used lot. But no matter what, your car deserves a little love! It’s not a very fun task—getting an oil change, checking your tires and going to the car wash can be a tedious afternoon—but the lines will be overflowing onto the road once summer season really kicks in. And don’t you want your car to look snazzy when you drive up to the valet of your favorite restaurant?
Check out a few places you can get your car in tip-top shape before Memorial Day. They’re all located in Southampton, as you drive into the Hamptons.
