What officially became Southampton Village in 1894 was the first English settlement in New York State, a destination for Puritans, who arrived in 1640 and were helped by Shinnecock Native Americans. Nowadays, it’s the commercial center of the Hamptons. Southampton has its share of beautiful parks and beaches (http://www.southamptonvillage.org), as well as hotspots for historical contemplation—check out the Historical Museum, Thomas Halsey Homestead and the Elias Pelletreau Silversmith Shop (http://www.southamptonhistoricalmuseum.org). For a taste of innovative art from past and present, visit the Parrish Art Museum (http://www.parrishart.org). Places to eat while visiting the town include Southampton Publick House (http://www.publick.com), a microbrewery paradise with casual grub and a top island beer spot. And for seafood, give local favorite the Lobster Inn a try (http://www.thelobsterinn.com). To have your listing considered, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
