Montauk is rich with history, natural beauty, accommodations, dining spots and family-friendly things to do. Montauk’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Weekend is a great time to take advantage of the warmer weather to enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, fishing, beachcombing and bird watching. Many accommodations offer off-season rates and the Parade Weekend is considered the unofficial start of the season for many Montauk businesses who open their doors that weekend.
