When you grow up in a tourist town, it is easy to take for granted all the attractions others are willing travel hours to see.

As a Southold girl, it is hard to believe that I never sailed the Greenport Harbor, or took the time to see local art galleries and antique shops. But that all changed Sunday when I challenged myself to sample as much of the village as I could without breaking the bank.

For about $100 my best friend and I ate pizza, scored free samples of local wine and hot sauce, browsed the mom and pop shops, hit the water on the Glory Going Green tour boat, grabbed drinks at Claudio’s Clam Bar and finished the day with margaritas and tacos.

The best part? It cost us about $51.50 each.

Here is how it’s done:

The first stop was the newly opened 1943 Pizza Bar, locally beloved food truck Rolling in Dough’s brick-and-mortar location which opened on Main Street last week. I knew their signature crispy crust was a great way to start the day.

We ordered the delicious, filling and reasonably priced 13-inch Red Pie. For $13, tax included, we’re fueled up for the next adventure.

For high rollers, the Pizza Bar offers a variety of toppings ranging from an extra $1 to $3 each. Being on a budget, we opted for extra fresh chopped garlic for no additional cash.

Spent: $13

Money remaining: $87
