The Tiny Beach Town Near Boston You’ve Never Heard Of But Need To Visit

When warmer weather arrives, Bostonians flock to the Cape either by ferry or – if you feel like reading bumper stickers while inching forward – by car. In the other direction, we are lured to the beaches of the North Shore. However, many of us stop well shy of the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border and that means we miss out on Salisbury: the ultimate beach town.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Should you want to extend your trip, there are plenty of hotels and motels in the area, as well as a campsite at Salisbury Beach State Reservation.
