Default The Hamptons vs. Cape Cod

These are two premiere locations where the rich and often famous go to vacation in the summer.
Where would you prefer to have a summer home?
EDIT* - When I say Cape Cod, I mean Cape Cod & Martha's Vineyard/Nantucket etc.

Beaches:
Cost of Living:
Weather:
Nightlife:
Fine Dining:
Shopping
People:
Kid-Friendly:
Overall Environment/Feel:

etc.

Ehh, the Cape isn't really for the "Rich & Famous" .... there are certainly very, very wealthy areas on the Cape, but I'd say a better comparison to the Hamptons would be Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.

^Agreed, however, I'll go with the Cape. I like how the Cape is setup, and it's thinner, so it's easier to get from the cape side to the ocean side. Also, I'd prefer a getaway that is NOT for the rich and famous.

Yeah, I agree with that. There is definitely more to do in the Hamptons. Cape Cod is great for beaches, fishing, cooking out, eating out (I agree on the lobster!), and smaller activities (mini-golf, small shops, etc.). It's very relaxing there.

What does one do in the Hamptons that is not done on the Cape and the Islands?

Never been to the Hamptons, never even thought about going to the Hamptons...but I've visited Cape Cod a few times so it gets my vote.
