How did we get here so quickly -- from the chillingly cold weather in February to the blazing hot heat and... WHAT?!!!... Memorial Day Weekend just a few short days away?
The "unofficial" start of summer means lobster, ice cream, beaches and other warm weather New England delights. If you're looking for some travel ideas, we encourage you to visit our "Top 30 Memorial Day Weekend New England Travel Ideas." Here, we list 30 New England towns and cities that feature great summer appeal -- from coastal getaways to beautiful mountain towns. Some destinations are obvious but ultimately worthy like Plymouth, Mass., and Old Orchard Beach, Maine, but we include some hidden gems, too, like Old Lyme, Conn., and Watch Hill, R.I. In other words, a little something for everyone.
Happy New England travels, and please write us about any New England summer destinations you'd like us to cover!
