Weekend Getaways from Boston
Cool breezes, warm water, and an easily navigable town are some of Cape Cod's calling cards; attractions, shopping, and easy day trips to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket round out the bill, with ample restaurants, beaches, and local entertainment.
There's plenty of biking, hiking, and other outdoor pursuits in Martha's Vineyard. The Vineyard has attracted the rich, famous, and regular folk for its carefree lifestyle of flip-flops, bicycles, boats, sand, and perfect sunsets.
There's a lot to love about this coastal gem, from glittery mansions with rolling lawns to top-notch restaurants and Champagne cruises. For friends (or lovers) looking for a fun weekend getaway, this charming seaside town delivers on all fronts.
Maine, only 100 or so miles up I-95 from Boston, is a world away from the city. Dotted with picturesque town centers and regal coastline, the span from Kittery to Freeport is an attitude-adjusting getaway—a place to find your center whether your relaxation comes from ocean scenery or generous amounts of retail therapy.
The Berkshire Mountains
The hamlets nestled in the Berkshire Mountains are blessed with unspoiled scenery and terrific art, music, theater, and antiquing. Eight museums join renowned stage productions and dance festivals, plus a little music venue called Tanglewood in this idyllic corner of Massachusetts.
