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.
