If you ask me, one of the very best things about living in the United…
No matter the season, New England is a fabulous destination.
Best part? Everything in this part of the country is so close! You can pack in a lot of sightseeing in just a few days. From a weekend on Cape Cod; a traditional clambake on the beach (or in my case, in a garage!); strolling through Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket; and a sailboat tour of Boston Harbor, there’s so much to see and do.
There’s so much to explore in this part of the country.
You always find something new– year-round! Springtime is all about pops of colorful blooms. When summer rolls around, everyone heads to the beach for sun, sand and food– think lobster rolls, clambakes and ice cream! Few places are are lovely in the fall. How can you argue with cooler temperatures, colorful foliage, favorite sweaters and long drives or bike rides? And there’s even a lot to love in winter: few crowds, crackling fires, and more time to get to know the locals.
Here’s a few of my favorite New England activities:
• Walk the Freedom Trail in Boston. 2.5 miles jam-packed with American history. Literally can’t do that anywhere else!
• Head to the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Tour the enchanting, fairy tale cottages, explore the rivalry between the two islands and lose yourself in a plate of steaming seafood at a traditional New England clambake. Try to decide which island is your personal favorite.
• Waste away at least part of your weekend on Cape Cod. My favorite activity (weather permitting, of course!)? Cycling along the bike path in Provincetown where you can enjoy the outdoors and see the sites at your own pace. Don’t forget to indulge yourself at the Sundae School, an institution of ice cream perfect for any warm day.
• Sail! One of my favorites is sailing the Boston Harbor. It’s an awesome way to see the city, plus: No traffic!
• Dinner on the beach. In Boston, I love picking up Kelly’s for dinner, then heading down to Revere Beach. Can’t beat it!
