Here’s one more reason for road tripping to the Cape this year: Its sought-after beaches make it one of the best weekend escapes in the country, according to Travel + Leisure.
Travel + Leisure recently named Cape Cod among the 15 best weekend beach getaways in the U.S.
“When you’re in need of some sand and surf, but short on time, a rejuvenating weekend trip is the perfect way to get your fix before heading back to work on Monday (or Tuesday, if you can squeeze in a three-day weekend),” Travel + Leisure wrote.
Here’s what the publication wrote about the Cape:
“Located an hour and a half to two hours from Boston by car (depending on where on the Cape you’re going), Cape Cod is the quintessential Massachusetts beach weekend getaway. There are a number of quaint towns to choose from . . . Of course, when it comes to lounging on the sand, you can’t beat the Cape Cod National Seashore, which offers six swimming beaches. The Coast Guard Beach is a family-friendly option, while mile-long Nauset Light Beach offers great surfing.”
