Sag Harbor: What to Do
Photographer: Annie Schlechter

What to Do

The calm waters surrounding Sag Harbor are ideal for crabbing, clamming, fishing, sailing, kayaking, and paddleboarding. Art and music festivals abound in season, and there’s an ambitious program of plays and musicals at Bay Street Theatre, a local institution.

Year-round, pick up The Sag Harbor Express for listings of live music, readings, and gallery openings. Anytime, take a self-guided walking tour of the historic district, with sites grand to charmingly funky. Pick up a brochure at the headquarters of the Sag Harbor Historical Society, sagharborhistoricalsociety.org.
