What locals say it means to End Up Here...

“Montauk is a resort town but also a very welcoming community with wide open arms that greet our visitors as long-lost friends. I think that the main attraction that brings people to Montauk is the small hometown feel, and the authenticity of the people and the town. In that respect you can’t separate Montauk and hospitality. End Up Here!”
Paul Monte
Montauk Chamber of Commerce and Visit Montauk Board of Directors
“Ending up here is the dream that our visitors get to appreciate for a moment, but us locals get to experience every day of our lives. The east end, in my opinion, is one of the most amazing places you could ever live, work or visit. It has so much to offer and so many incredible things to see. I am proud to live and run my business on the east end. I thank God every day for these blessings.”
