Dan’s Best of the Best 2020: Vote for the Best Recreation, Travel and Tourism

Dan's Best of the Best Recreation Tourism
Dan's Best of the Best

Autumn is the perfect time to plan a getaway to the East End, whether it’s a weekend in Long Island Wine Country, a weeklong escape to the seaside in Montauk or a day trip to enjoy the sights and activities awaiting throughout the Hamptons and North Fork. And the best place to start is with the Dan’s Best of the Best picks for Recreation, Travel and Tourism.

A beautiful hotel overlooking the ocean or a bed & breakfast steps away from a historic village. A helicopter flight service to get you from New York City to the Hamptons without any time in traffic or a boat rental to get you out on the water. A fabulous family attraction for an outing with the kids, a great golf course for a long walk spoiled, a superior SUP rental…whatever your idea of a perfect trip to the East End entails, you’ll find it with Dan’s  Best of the Best—and you can tell everyone who your favorites are when you vote for Dan’s Best of the Best Recreation, Travel and Tourism.
