When you think of Boston, perhaps you think of Victorian homes, baseball bats, and truly unique New England accents – but do you ever think of beaches? During your next trip to Beantown, check out the hidden stretches of sand.
If it’s summer, bring those sandals for some beach sports, and if it’s winter, bring that warm jacket for a brisk morning stroll.
Start your beach-hopping adventure at Revere Beach. Located 7 km north of downtown Boston and accessible by the subway (nicknamed the “T”), this 3-km beach is the oldest public beach in the United States. While you can spend your whole day walking along the sand, take a peek at the Victorian-styled pavilions and old-fashioned bathhouses. Revere Beach is also a popular spot for dog lovers, and you’ll see plenty of locals walking their pooches during morning’s first light. For something a little calmer, head 16 km south of downtown to the South Boston Beaches, a continuous stretch of sandy regions looking out to Dorchester Bay. If you’re travelling around the New Year, make your way to L Street Beach, where the “L Street Brownies” plunge into the icy water every January 1st.
Whether you’re looking for a place to wash off the sand or get your bones warmed up, you can count on your Boston beach hotel. Pick a spot close to the shore for the ultimate convenience. And not to worry about fishing around for great deals; Expedia makes it easy to book a hotel in Boston on the cheap. We also offer top discounts on pet-friendly hotels if you’re looking to bring Buddy or Sassy along for the trip.
Life’s a beach when you visit Boston. Just make sure you have a cozy beach hotel to welcome you back from the sea.
