City Escapes in New England
Suburban life is busy – we get it. From taking care of errands to carving out time to kick back and relax, it’s easy to forget about planning a weekend escape for some new sights and sounds. Thankfully, New England is home to a ton of popular cities that are known for their historical roots, amazing culinary scenes, and beautiful landscapes. If you’re looking for events to fill your calendar, consider planning a long weekend away at one of these popular New England city escapes!
Explore the City of Boston
We will be totally honest… starting off with Boston is a little biased of us. But in reality, how could you not have such a beautiful, historic, and charming city on your list of New England must-sees? While Forest Properties residents of Landing 53 are within close proximity to Boston, it’s always worth taking some time to explore what’s around you.
If you’re planning a weekend visit to Boston for the first time, here are a few recommended items to add to your itinerary:
- Go gallery hopping in Beacon Hill
- Visit Bowl Market to support it over 30 independent food, art, and retail shop vendors
- Tour the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery
- Enjoy a rooftop cocktail at the popular Revere Hotel (which boasts a 270 degree view of Boston!)

Venture Through Providence, Rhode Island
Providence is the perfect city for any visitor of any age with any interest. Rhode Island’s capital city is filled with nothing short of history, culture, and amazing nightlife entertainment. And yes, this includes plenty of highly-rated restaurants!
If you’re a sports fan, be sure to check out the game schedule for nearby universities including Johnson and Wales, Brown, and the Rhode Island school of design. Afterwards, we recommend making a dinner reservation at Waterman Grille for amazing seafood, Julian’s for a tasty brunch, or be spontaneous and eat at a local food truck you may stumble upon – just ask the locals of Four Seasons apartments!
Good to Know: If you’re more of an outdoors person, Providence is close to some pretty amazing natural attractions, too! During the warmer months, check out the Providence River Boat Company to get a water side view of the city. Another option is to take a lighthouse cruise or wander through the Roger Williams Park Zoo.
