My boyfriend and I want to get away from the city and decided to go to Montauk in early April (4/3-4/10).
We've never been before and wanted to know opinions about a few things.
How to get there:
What's better - LIRR or Hampton Jitney? Is the Jitney worth the price?
I was thinking of renting a car, but now think that it's not really necessary...
Since things may be closed in early April is it OK not to have a car and just walk everywhere?
Would you recommend renting a bicycle or moped? We both love exercise and the outdoors, and would love to bike everywhere, but is it worth the money or even necessary?
After looking through many hotels/motels, I think I decided on the Royal Atlantic (was also looking at Beach Plum, Panoramic View, and Atlantic Terrace, but they're all closed).
Is it necessary to spend the extra $200 for beach front rather than beach view?
I am looking forward to getting away and having a nice week near the beach with not a lot of people...
but is it crowded at all during this time?
Are there things to do?
We would love to go horseback riding or moutain biking or hiking. Where could we do this?
I realize these are a lot of questions, but any input would be greatly appreciated.
