As international summer getaways hang in the balance for many, it’s good to remind yourselves that there are plenty of beautiful spots right in your own backyard — and New England is certainly no different. If you’re looking for a weekend getaway, look no further — we have a list of the very best.

Newport, Rhode Island, is continually cited as one of New England’s most picturesque getaways, and is beautiful no matter what season. Besides for beautiful beaches and rocky coastline walks, Newport is also home to the Newport Mansions, a collection of stately and historic homes open to visitors. There’s also a thriving seafood and shopping scene — a weekend won’t be long enough!

Lenox is nestled in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains of western Massachusetts. Home to the famous Tanglewood music festival, Lenox is a lovely, bustling town filled with museums, galleries, great restaurants and spas galore. But this trip is definitely one for nature loves — the real draw is the surrounding mountains. 

Martha’s Vineyard is possibly the most iconic weekend location in Massachusetts and is the epitome of classic New England summers. The local sites include Whaling Captains’ houses, scenic bike rides, the iconic Jaws Bridge and the host of celebrities and politicians who make the island their summer getaway. But don’t be fooled by the glamorous clientele; Martha’s Vineyard is far more laidback than neighboring Nantucket, making it an ideal destination for friends and family alike.
