Although Instagram removed the photo maps feature from our personal profiles, thankfully we’re still able to search by location tag. And if you’re looking for inspiration on what to do on your next trip, Instagram is always the place to search.

While “The Hamptons” is just about the most vague location tag that one could use when spending a weekend out east, it serves as one of the easiest things to search when trying to figure out what it is that vacationers do in their time here.

Where are your favorite places to Instagram in the Hamptons?
