Memorial Day Getaways Near Boston
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!
Relax at Cape Cod National Seashore
If digging your toes into the sand sounds like the perfect weekend escape, Cape Cod National Seashore is the ideal place for you! 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:
- Ocean Mist Beach Hotel & Suites – the Cape’s premier boutique beachfront hotel
- Cape Codder Resort & Spa – with a relaxing spa and indoor waterpark, there’s something for every member of the family to enjoy
- Anchor In Waterfront Lodging – perched overlooking Cape Cod Hyannis Harbor, sit back along a fire and watch yachts and fishing boats sail by
- Wequassett Resort & Golf Club – features 120 guest rooms and suites, four restaurants, two pools, two sandy beaches and an 18-hole golf course
