Never been to Montauk......looking for suggestion


Recently moved to Fresh Meadows NY. We are thinking of driving to the Montauk and Hamptons Area over Labor Day just to see the area, we have never been there and are very unfamilar with the area. We wanted to stay over one night but it appears most places require several night reservation over the holiday weekend. Per mapquest appears about 2 1/2 hour drive one way.

Looking for opinions if it would be worth it to go up and back in one day? Are there must see places along the way that anyone would suggest seeing? We love the ocean but probably will pass on swimming this trip as we would not have a hotel to go back to change.

I know the LIRR goes to the area. Are there ferries along the way to take you to Montauk?

All opinions and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks so much in advance!!
