New England beach vacations involve an enchanting assortment of sights, sounds, and smells. The rustic, bleached-wood charm of beachside cottages. The soothing, deep-throated rumble of lobster boats returning with the day’s catch. The crispness of North Atlantic breezes whisking in over the dunes. Even during the winter, the region is a truly stunning place to visit.  Boasting 115 beaches, The Cape’s wide sandy stretches and gently shelving tides are ideal for families, couples, corporate retreats and memorable weddings.  With more than 3,000 miles of coastline, it is no surprise that Maine is home to some of New England’s most stunning beaches.  For a real local experience, families can join a Lobster Boat Tour for the opportunity to catch their own lobster and hear seafaring tales from the boat’s Captain.  For a beach vacation with a difference, travel to the beautiful sandy beaches that border Vermont’s Lake Champlain, New England’s largest lake.  The lake offers plenty of fun activities for all  to enjoy including swimming, kayaking, hiking, biking and boating and there are a number of small islands to be explored.
