Good company, delicious food, and plenty of sunshine: That’s the winning formula for any summer vacation.

But in certain corners of the country, the summer soirées seem a bit more extravagant.

We turned to Instagram to find out how the most expensive vacation town in America — Southampton, New York — is celebrating this 4th of July.

The occasion is filled with pool parties, fancy backyard dinners, and beautiful views.

Scroll through the photos below to see for yourself:

Southampton, New York, is located on the East End of Long Island in the Hamptons.

At least 5% of the homes in Southampton are occupied seasonally, and it doesn’t come cheap. The median listing price for a home in the area is $1,950,000, making it the most expensive vacation town in America, according to Trulia.

The seaside town is a hotspot for travelers during the summer, especially for those looking to escape New York City for a long weekend.

Relaxing poolside is a popular activity.

It’s not uncommon to spend the weekend in a house with dozens of your closest friends.

Even though it’s a beach town, you’re still expected to dress your best.

It wouldn’t be summer in the Hamptons without a bottle of Rosé and a beautiful view to go with it.
