North of Boston

The North of Boston region is comprised of two unique tourist areas. North of Boston and The Greater Merrimack Valley. If you like beaches, witches, seafaring and freedom (and who doesn’t?), the North of Boston region is for you. Here on the North Shore, you can explore 30 miles of gorgeous rocky coastline, with stops along the way as varied as the Salem Witch Museum and the New England Pirate Museum. Further inland, in the Greater Merrimack Valley, you can relive the revolution (just the fun, non-Bayonet-y, parts) in Lexington and Concord.  Did we mention there’s a North of Boston Seafood Trail that even has its own app? Yep, we just did. Tie on your lobster bib.
