Massachusetts Has One Of The Best Towns For A Beach House
With schools out for summer, it’s that time of year when we retreat to the shorelines. Where you go depends upon your location. However, Travel and Leisure recently published a list with some great suggestions. They recognized an area of Massachusetts for having one of the best beach towns.
There are a few variables in what you look for in the beach you frequent. While convenience is high on the list, sometimes people seek out a quiet area of soft sand to simply relax. Others look for beaches that have comfortable waters, activities for kids, and great food options close by.
This location in Massachusetts has the best of both worlds. If you’re in Boston, simply head over the Bourne and Sagamore Bridge, and you will be about 60 miles from this unique beach town.
At the tip of Cape Cod, P-Town has all of summer’s best offerings right at your disposal. “Vacationers spend days frolicking at commerce-free Race Point and Herring Cove beaches, biking through pine forests and dunes, or strolling downtown’s Commercial Street to visit its funky shops, galleries, and eateries,” Travel and Leisure explains.
Most whale watch tours on the Cape leave out of Provincetown. Their open-air pedicab tours offer an impressive way to experience Cape Cod’s natural beauty.
Bay Harbour is one neighborhood where you will find luxury beachfront homes with stunning views of Cape Cod Bay. In addition, the West End offers a quieter residential experience.
Where Else In New England
Although Provincetown was the only place in Massachusetts highlighted, there were a few other New England areas highlighted in the best beach towns feature. Ogunquit, Maine, Block Island, Rhode Island, and Newport, Rhode Island, were also praised for their coastline accommodations.
If you are looking to spend time at a Provincetown beachside house this season, there are still options available to you via rental sites like VRBO.
