Southampton, New York, is located on the East End of Long Island in the Hamptons.
At least 5% of the homes in Southampton are occupied seasonally, and it doesn’t come cheap. The median listing price for a home in the area is $1,950,000, making it the most expensive vacation town in America, according to Trulia.
The seaside town is a hotspot for travelers during the summer, especially for those looking to escape New York City for a long weekend.

Even though it’s a beach town, you’re still expected to dress your best.
