Taking a summer trip to the North Shore? Cape Ann is Massachusetts’s lesser-known Cape (Cape Cod being a Boston favorite), but it’s worth exploring still. The North Shore is a great spot for a summer getaway, whether it’s just a weekend retreat or more. Fantastic summer getaways include the North Shore, Cape Ann, and New Hampshire’s Seacoast.

From history to whale watching, Gloucester is the must see city to explore in Cape Ann. It’s the oldest fishing port in America and continues to be a major part of the fishing industry. Great fishing also means great seafood: fresh haddock, cod, tuna, and New England's favorite… lobsters. If you’re looking for an authentic New England experience, Gloucester is the summer destination for you.
Wingaersheek Beach and Good Harbor Beach are white sand beaches perfect for swimming, boogie boarding, beach volleyball, and building sand castles. Good Harbor Beach offers views of the Twin Lighthouses on Thacher Island. Whale watching is also popular from several whale-watching companies in Gloucester. The best season to see whales is typically between mid-April through October when whales are feeding.

New Hampshire’s Seacoast is of course a summer favorite, but there are a lot of underappreciated places as well.

While New Hampshire will never be mistaken for Hawaii, some great surfing lessons in Rye and Portsmouth, and North Hampton. Portsmouth Harbor Cruises are also popular in summer.
