One of the most anticipated holiday weekends of the year is rapidly approaching. If you don’t have travel plans yet, Conde Nast Traveler put a list together to help you out. They named a Massachusetts destination as one of the best Memorial Day weekend getaway spots.
Conde Nast Traveler assembled a collection of scenic locations around the country that are accessible and convenient as a quick decision trip. Each place has a nature-driven, adventurous tone to it. This enables you to combine relaxation and activity during the first long summer weekend. The best part is, they note that there is still time to book these Memorial Day escapes.
Though there are plenty of reasons to travel over the canal in colder months, Memorial Day weekend is when much of Cape Cod opens for the season. “Late May marks the beginning of Cape Cod’s whale watching season, and wildlife enthusiasts won’t want to miss the opportunity to set out in the sunshine and try to catch a glimpse of migrating humpback and finback whales,” the article highlights.
Many restaurants in the quaint towns have begun to open their doors as well. Specialty lobster rolls establishments, clam shacks, and oyster bars are ready to serve. In addition, many Cape Cod national seashore beaches are open year-round. With promising looking weather, you can also grab a bike and head out along the 26-mile paved bike paths dedicated to bike or rollerblade activity.
Lastly, Cape Cod has plenty of public golf courses that offer a perfect blend of unique scenery and fresh Cape air. Some even have lodging accommodations.

If you want to look outside of Massachusetts, Maine was also highlighted in Conde Nast Traveler’s list. It mentions Acadia National Park as an ideal place for a trip. Furthermore, Maine has miles of coastline along the Atlantic Ocean, where you catch waves to surf and fish to eat.
