They may not seem like much, but New England beach towns are the pride and joy of many. When long weekends stretch out in front of us or we need a quick R&R day along the coast, us New Englanders don't have to go far! Sure, we don't have pristine, white sand and clear, Caribbean oceans, but we have sprawling sand dunes, the best lobster rolls around and a charm that can't be beat.
And we can get a little fancy, too. New England isn't just tiny cottages or condos with zero privacy. These quaint strips are decked out with impressive resorts, too, lodgings that blend luxury with the comforts of home for the perfect long weekend getaway.
