Enjoy the Hamptons in the Fall

Though the Hamptons is known as Hollywood’s summer playground, it serves as a local’s jungle gym each fall. Foliage, pumpkins, early sunsets and corn mazes galore, the stars don’t know what they’re about to miss out on when they pack up and move back West. But you probably don’t mind a little less traffic as you experience the Hamptons in the fall.
