Tailgating Field Side at the Polo in Bridgehampton…

Polo & Picnics in the Hamptons!

Polo & Picnics in the Hamptons!

One of the things I love most about New York are the weekend get-aways! Winter weekend trips skiing in the Berkshires and Summer trips to Cape Cod and the Hamptons! Many Manhattanites will do summer shares in the Hamptons and Manhattan comes to the beach in the form of parties, events and great restaurants! However one thing that can’t be done in Manhattan is watching a polo match! There are no polo fields on Manhattan Isle but it is a great day out if you are spending the weekend in the Hamptons! The Bridgehampton Polo Club is world-famous so get dressed up to mingle with the who’s who of the New York social scene! If you can snag a pass into the VIP area then do so for unlimited champagne, great food and star-spotting, otherwise tailgating from the side of the grounds is good fun too! You pay per car (around $30) and can park right up to the edge of the Polo Field and have your picnic with a perfect view of the match! But you must picnic in style – lots of bubbles and a fabulous hat are essential (as long as you are not the designated driver!) and soak up the sunshine and fun for a great TravelBella-style experience!
