We live in Westhampton and Westhampton Beach and it is just one of the nicest places around. Here are the top four reasons you would like it too:

ROGERS BEACH Most of our classmates agree this is the beach to go to. It is beautiful and the surfing is amazing. It is a great place to meet up with friends. There are other great nearby beaches too, including Pike’s Beach, the Surf Club and more.

MAIN STREET There is so much to do here for kids and adults. We like to meet up at the gazebo or go down to Westhampton Beach Bakery for delicious snacks.

BOOM BURGER You can get some of the best burgers around here, and other great food too. It’s on Montauk Highway (

WESTHAMPTON FREE LIBRARY Library? Oh yeah! There is so much to do. Every month they have a new activity such as a cooking or crafts program. They also have a reading program for young and old. This month they featured a cooking program making Irish soda bread and leprechaun pie.
