If you haven’t already developed spring fever from the warm weather taking over Boston this week, we bet the thought of a Memorial Day Weekend getaway will do the trick! For residents of Forest Properties’ apartments in the Boston-Metro area, there are plenty of weekend escapes within a few hours to take advantage of. Here are our favorite spots just outside of the city.

Escape to Block Island

If the thought of enjoying quintessential New England scenery has your attention, don’t miss out on reserving a room in Block Island.

About 1 hour and 45 minutes outside of Boston, the island is covered with picture-perfect farmland and conservation areas. With 10 compact square miles of land area, you can bike anywhere in under 20 minutes, making it super easy to spend all weekend on two wheels. Don’t forget to enjoy sights from the sea aboard the Block Island Ferry!

Preferred accommodations on the water at Block Island include Hygeia House and the Surf Hotel.

Grab your favorite beach read and pick a spot on this 40-mile long beach, just 1 hour and 45 minutes from Boston. There are a ton of hotels, bed and breakfasts, and quaint accommodations to call home for Memorial Day Weekend, and here are a few we recommend:
