Boston Day Trip
There’s no better place to celebrate all that is fall than in the Boston area. Consider one of the following close-to-home getaways this fall.
Whether you’re a Massachusetts native, a recent arrival, or a visitor from out of town, a trip to Plymouth, Massachusetts offers you plenty of ways to learn a bunch about Massachusetts and New England colonial history.
So many vacations focus on beaches, coastlines and amusement parks. So why not go someplace out of the ordinary that will spark your senses and reveal the inner artist in you?
With 120 shops at the Kittery Outlets alone, this town has long been a mecca for bargain hunters and fashionistas of all tastes.
How about head to a beautiful island where the beaches are plentiful, towns are filled with charming homes and unique stores line pristine streets filled with centuries of history.
Think of sinking your toes into miles of beautiful beaches and looking out to the water to find the horizon spotted with majestic lighthouses that have been guiding ships to New England for over a century.
The summer days are warm and relaxing, but the summer nights are cool and inviting. They provide the perfect backdrop for a view of the WaterFire in Providence. Walk by the water or stop in one of the many shops, but be ready for some visual excitement as this unique sculpture is set ablaze.
For a budget-friendly escape from Boston, few one-tank trips beat a day at Lake Winnipesaukee. Spend time on the beach, enjoy dining and shopping, stroll the apple orchards, or hike the nearby trails, but don’t miss out on this perfect day trip right near home. The views of the lake are spectacular, and outdoor activities abound, making this New Hampshire getaway a must.
This beautiful city has a unique mixture of modern art and old world flare.
A summer weekend on the Outer Cape is the perfect way to get out of the city and onto the beach. No plane tickets are needed for this affordable vacation, as it is a quick 90-minute drive from Boston through Plymouth. Tour the dunes or just relax on the beach, but don’t miss out on a sunny, sea-side visit to the Outer Cape this summer.
