Drivable summer Spots Near Burlington Explore close to the coast

While we think there is plenty to do along Third Ave near Archer Hotel Burlington — we also know there is so much more to explore in our New England neighborhoods.

From coastal views to fresh seafood, quaint shops to historic sites — get ready for a summer of exploring these beautiful destinations near Burlington. You're sure to make memories that will last a lifetime.


Newburyport A charming coastal town

Visit Newburyport for dining, shopping, boat tours and sightseeing. Just 35 miles north of Boston, Newburyport's rich maritime heritage entices visitors with a lifestyle unlike any other.

Enjoy happy hour at Sea Level Oyster Bar, with fresh seafood and intriguing drinks, or Tuscan Sea Bar, specializing in coastal artisan Italian fare on the waterfront. For family-friendly adventures, consider Yankee Clipper Harbor Tours and cruise at sunset, or visit Plum Island Beach, a public beach with a lighthouse, natural wildlife refuge, shopping and delicious eats.


Gloucester America's oldest seaport

A 45-minute trip from downtown Boston, Gloucester is home to America's oldest seaport. The community's natural beauty awaits exploration, complemented by local artists, independent shops and award-winning restaurants.

Stop by Causeway Restaurant, the best mom-n-pop seafood stop for lunch or visit Blue Collar Lobster Co. for an afternoon of drinks on the deck. Relax on the white sand at Good Harbor Beach and take in historic sites at Stage Fort Park where kids can play on the playground or on the volleyball, tennis and basketball courts.


Rockport Take in the art

Take in art in Rockport. A seaside escape an hour north of Boston, Rockport's internationally known art colony on Cape Ann offers exquisite and unique shopping all year round.

Stop by Joe’s Fresh Fish Prints to learn about gyotaku — the Japanese method of printing fish. Lovers of all things outdoors will enjoy the trails, tide pools, rocky ledges and beautiful views at Halibut Point State Park. End the day with BYOB waterfront dining "in the rough" at The Lobster Pool.


Salem Rich history + family fun

Get spooky (or spooked) in Salem, where the history is palpable. Enjoy guided tours, sightseeing, boat cruises, unique shopping and dining. 

Enjoy upscale New England cuisine in a 19th-century bank building at Ledger Restaurant & Bar. If an old-school dive is more your style, try The Lobster Shanty for fresh seafood and comfort food. 

Then head to one (or more) of Salem's many museums: Salem Wax Museum, Friendship of Salem, House of the Seven Gables and Peabody Essex Museum. 


Hampton, New Hampshire A little bit of everything

Head out of state (but not too far) to Hampton, New Hampshire. The sweet little town of Hampton has everything you need: all on the beach, including seafood, dining, shopping, concerts and activities for kids.

Enjoy Atlantic ocean-front facilities, plus swimming, fishing, picnicking and RV camping at Hampton Beach State Park. Then recharge with tropical drinks, food and nightly entertainment at Bernie’s Beach Bar — the largest deck on Hampton Beach. Head outdoors and explore the town or the water (or both) with gear from Ocean Cycles & Beach Rentals.
