Real Estate investing has always been a big part of Westhampton Beach's history. Founded in 1666 as part of the "Quogue Purchase", it wasn't long after, 1675, in fact that its first real estate boom occurred. Even back then folks knew about location, location, location.
By the time the Long Island Railroad reached town in 1870, Westhampton Beach was already attracting a vacation crowd and The Hamptons were fast becoming a resort haven.
Incorporated in 1928, the village is bordered by three bodies of water- the Atlantic Ocean, Moniebogue Bay, and Quantuck Bay to the East. The town encompasses an area of 2.9 square miles.
Today, it has become one of the most popular places to visit in The Hamptons. Located just 78 miles from New York City, it is known for it's family friendly atmosphere and laid back lifestyle.
There is always something to do with the emphasis on outdoor activities. Golfing, Tennis, boating, fishing are just a partial list.
Of course there are the famous Dune Rd. beaches. They are truly some of the worlds best. There are two public beaches in town, Rogers, and Lashley.
Don't forget to visit Main St. where you will find great shopping, dining and entertainment.
Speaking of entertainment, check out what's playing at the Westhampton Performing Arts Theatre where there's always a great performance to catch.
