The end of summer does not by any means equal a lack of Hamptons and North Fork adventures. For so many, the fall harvest events highlight the true charm and culture that Long Island offers visitors and residents alike. While the beaches may lack their normal number sun worshippers, the vineyards and wineries become hot spots for oenophiles who want to enjoy the terroir amongst the spectacular rose-colored East End sunsets we all love.
