It seems that every New Yorker has an insane Hamptons story... or four. Just admit it at this point, everyone's story out East has ended (at one time or another) in complete and utter disaster.

It also seems that the Hamptons are a place where New York City folks run wild. (It might be something in the air, but who really knows?)

I'm sure all of us still cherish those great memories of Hamptons summers past-- whether it be those crazy daytime parties, wild house parties, or ragin' nightclub memories.

But with those memories come a ton of bad experiences, fall-outs, and breakups.

That being said, it's time to drop the mic on the Hamptons and explain why it's become completely overrated.

Here are 16 reasons. (P.S., if you're staying local this summer, check this out.)


1. If you think the Hamptons are an escape from NYC, wrong. Same people, same stories
