Why wait for summer to visit Long Island’s East End? Sag Harbor plays host to HarborFrost every February. The family-friendly festivities start with Culinary Stroll and the Frosty Plunge at Windmill Beach and end with a sunset firework display over the scenic harbor. In between, enjoy ice carving demos, live music, fire jugglers and more during this festive frolic.
Where to Stay:
Consider a weekend getaway when you book a stay at Baron’s Cove. Perfectly located near all the fun, it’s a cozy place to nest, with its blazing fireplace and year-round bar serving soothing hot toddies. The on-site restaurant is a destination in itself, featuring sustainable seafood prepared with panache. Old-fashioned delights, such as just-baked Parker House rolls with sweet butter, are in tune with the timeless vibe. Special packages offer complimentary meals for children age 12 and younger, so junior gourmets will be satisfied. Pets are welcome, so bring the four-legged members of the family. Winter rates start at $199 per night.
For an effortless car-free outing, ride the Hampton Jitney a few hours straight to the heart of the village.
