Montauk

Hey, not sure really where I should have put this, it could go under several categories. Anyway, does anyone live in or can tell me about Montauk NY? I've been there before a few years ago. I want to take my girlfriend there on the Meanie in the next couple months. Basically I guess I'm asking if Montauk is tourist-ready. Did Sandy hit there and if yeah, are they all cleaned up? Any advice on where to go or what to see? Thanks for any information.

They do have a website...figured that the information should be current:
http://www.onmontauk.com/

I don't know anyone in the area, so I can't say for sure what is open and ready for tourists.

Maybe use the website and make a few calls???

I used to live in Orient (the end of the other fork on Long Island). The end of the island was incredibly lucky and weathered Sandy very well. Here are some things:

I think you mentioned in another post you've been out there before- so you know about the traffic since it is really only a single road and everyone loves visiting there.

-You can go to the end (pretty) and pay the cheap fee to go up the lighthouse.
-Any beach is a great beach.
-Plenty of shopping in South Hampton and East Hampton if you are into that (nice area too).
-If you don't mind a little above average price- Gossmans is the best restaurant. Go for lunch for no line, beautiful view of/on the docks, and slightly cheaper fare.
-I think it is South Hampton that has a Royal Enfield store. They aren't my cup of tea, but look great. You can actually test ride them there!

-Explore. Once you get near Montauk every side road gives you great views and may even be a tiny bit twisty (something Long Island isn't known for).

Hope this helps!

Montauk is lovely as are the Hamptons and the whole area. Used to visit there often when I was actively boating. Many places to stay but make sure to make reservations well in advance. Lots of good places to eat as well, some very expensive some not so much Gossmans is definitely not to miss if you're going. By June or later they should be mostly recovered from Sandy. Let me know when you're going I'll map out a scenic route for you to get a nicer Long Island experience.
