Weekend Getaways and Day Trips

from Boston

Destinations for daytrips and weekend trips near Boston

Boston's East Coast location puts it close to many fun destinations for day trips and weekend getaways near the city, elsewhere in New England, New York and the Mid-Atlantic Coast, Eastern Canada, and even Europe.

Here are my recommendations for the best 18 day trips, weekend getaways, and long weekend destinations from Boston.

From famous Pilgrim and Revolutionary War sites to Cape Cod beaches . . . from picturesque New England villages to popular ski resorts . . . from the bright lights of New York City to glittering Montreal . . . you'll find a huge variety of fascinating destinations just a short distance away. 

And don't forget that a non-stop flight from Boston puts European cities such as Paris within easy reach for a long weekend.  Of course a week or more is better . . . but that's up to you!
