MTK: the beginning

We went to Montauk a few weeks ago – my first time out to “the end.” It was lovely, and I highly recommend going in September, especially like now when it’s 75 degrees out.

Itinerary highlights:

Literally a backyard, but much cooler than your childhood stomping grounds… There are candles (in ball jars, nonetheless!) lighting the walkway to the bar/restaurant area from the hotel lobby, lights strewn among the low-hanging trees and a fire pit. The ambiance is all-around perfect.

Go for a spin
We rented bikes from the Montauk Bike Shop and first rode to Ditch Plains, legendary MTK surfer beach. It was a very laid-back and serene scene. Next we rode to the uber trendy Surf Lodge and had drinks overlooking a peaceful Fort Pond. Last we biked to Duryea’s for lobster rolls (and clam chowder and sweet corn). We sat outside on the “Lobster Deck.” It was awesome! 
*If you do go to Duryea’s, bring cash (they don’t accept credit cards) and time your visit so you can sit outside (there’s very little room inside the joint). 

Bonfire on the beach
We (i.e. my boyfriend and his brother) made a fire on the beach. (It’s actually legal!) We made smores, drank beer and listened to music. 
*TIP FOR PLAYING MUSIC ON YOUR PHONE: Put the phone in a cup, and the music gets louder…
