is where we stayed when I was a kid, and I love waking up on the water.
Favorite Restaurants: Black Eyed Susan’s is my all-time favorite, but even if you have a reservation, you have to line up at six, which is a semi-hassle but worth it for the Caesar salad, the best on planet Earth. I also love The Pearl for seafood.
Favorite Sights: Sunset at Children’s Beach, with kiddies playing before the sun goes down; the lighthouse in Sconset; the view of the harbor from the White Elephant; looking down from the top of Main Street.
Favorite Museum: The Whaling Museum is incredible: the architecture and collection are world-class. You can’t believe this treasure is on a tiny island!
Best Shopping Streets: Main Street and Federal.
Favorite Shop: Parchment is a paper junkie’s dream—they have the best stuff and you drool for it all, from letterpress packaged cards to a ribbon bar to bespoke papers in the back.
Favorite Activity: The playground at Children’s Beach with my kids.
Something I'll never forget: The feeling that the real world and fast-paced NYC life are solar systems away.
What not to miss: The Juice Bar, for the best ice cream ever.
