Beaches

Here’s a very incomplete list of things to do on the beaches of Massachusetts: play in the waves at Coast Guard Beach, consistently ranked the #1 family beach in America; build a sandcastle at Revere Beach, or watch the pros build them during the annual Sand Sculpting Festival; get all philosophical at Henry David Thoreau’s Walden Pond; ride the waves at Long Beach; sunbathe at the gorgeous Crane Beach; bark at the seals at Chatham Lighthouse Beach; go clamming at the aptly named Clammers Beach; daydream about quitting your job and moving to Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard; catch the best sunset in New England at Madaket Beach. We could go on, but with almost 1,500 miles of coastline in Massachusetts plus countless picturesque ponds and lakes, we’re worried we’d break the internet.
