Sag Harbor Whaling Museum
DESCRIPTION: Often features the traveling Black Whalers Exhibit, which first opened here; the exhibit features new paintings of whaling subjects by six different Black artists, historic artwork, documents, artifacts, and a ditty bag (the 19th century equivalent of a “daypack”) of sail-making equipment owned by a Black Sag Harbor sailmaker who sailed aboard two local whaling ships in the early 1800s; the museum is work visiting even without the Black Whaler’s Exhibit.

B. Smith’s Restaurant
DESCRIPTION: In keeping with most traffic in Sag Harbor, the restaurant is only open between May and October;given its harbor and fishing village heritage of the region, there is a larger emphasis on seafood compared to its sister restaurants in New York City and Washington, DC; thankfully, the chef ensures that your taste buds are rewarded; the decor is very tasteful, light and airy – well suited to its wartime environment.
DAYS & HOURS: CLOSED
