On my Miami to Maine solo driving adventure, I enjoyed discovering the uniqueness of the 12 places I visited. On my first day in The Hamptons, I noticed a distinctive shopping venue, Hildreth’s, the oldest store in America. I was fascinated by the store’s longevity and, of course, I had to go in and see what made this store special.
As I gear up for the launch of Astrid Solo Travel Advisor, a website that provides affordable luxury tips and tricks for solo travelers, I decided to look back at some of my favorite moments spent traveling alone in 2015.
On my Miami to Maine solo driving adventure this spring, I spent a week in the Hamptons. I allotted enough time there to explore the best of what the area had to offer. One of the biggest surprises was the proliferation of viniculture on Long Island. I discovered there is a North Fork and South Fork Wine trail with over 65 vineyards to visit.
Choosing an affordable place to stay in the Hamptons for the solo traveler is a challenge. First and foremost, the Hamptons is one of the toniest vacation spots in the country. Consequently, everywhere is pricey. On top of cost, being able to find somewhere to stay is not easy. There are relatively few lodging options to be found. After an extensive search, I booked a reservation for my week long trip at A Butler’s Manor based on the information gotten from their website.
