Vacationers are chomping at the bit waiting for the start of summer, with the Memorial Day holiday weekend just a couple of weeks away. This holiday has long been the start of the summer vacation season in the northeast, and New England timeshare owners are sure to kick into high gear this year after two years of COVID-related restrictions.
With a summer season comparatively short in relation to other places in warmer latitudes, demand is high in destinations such as Cape Cod and Newport for timeshare accommodations. This is one reason why fixed week ownership continues to be popular here, as owners know the value of a guaranteed July week in this part of the country.
Looking ahead to one of the most highly anticipated travel seasons in memory, let’s take a look at some of the more popular places in the northeast known for timeshare resorts. Then, we’ll reveal our top New England timeshares for summer.
Some of these towns may be a bit of a surprise for you since they may not fit the concept of a traditional coastal vacation. We’ve looked at where our website visitors want to go based on their inquiries for specific timeshare resorts, so below are the places identified by our customers.
Lincoln, NH – this community in the midst of New Hampshire’s White Mountains provides wonderful summertime activities. This is a true four-season destination and, while known for access to great skiing, the hiking, nature walks, fishing, canoeing and kayaking in the state parks are amazing.
Boston, MA – Beantown is best visited during the summer, when you’re not battling the elements and checking for snow plows. This legendary town is full of colonial-era history best explored on the Freedom Trail. Check out Boston Common, the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, and the USS Constitution.
West Yarmouth, MA – sitting between South Yarmouth and Hyannis along the southern coast of Cape Cod, this area is known for beaches such as Seagull Beach as well as the protected Lewis Bay. Snap a photo of the Sea Gull Beach Lighthouse or use your centrally located spot to visit the rest of the Cape.
South Lee, MA – this scenic spot sits in the far western part of Massachusetts near the New York border. Known as the “Gateway to The Berkshires,” you’ll find art galleries, antiques, and delightful cafes, taverns and wineries in the region. Try walking a section of the famed Appalachian Trail.
Dennis Port, MA – along the southern coast of the Cape but a bit further east, it’s closer to the beaches of the Cape Cod National Seashore. But don’t miss some of the best stretch of beaches on the Cape right here, such as Sea Street Beach. Also check out the Cape Cod Museum of Art if you have time.
Ogunquit, ME – in the far southeastern corner of Maine just across the border with New Hampshire, this charming coastal community has some of Maine’s best beaches along with galleries, boutique shops and pedestrian-only areas. The Ogunquit Playhouse is one of the best local summer theaters in New England.
Newport, RI – considered by many to be the yachting mecca of America, this long-time home of the America’s Cup originally dates back to 1639 when the Puritans first settled the area. Boating and seafood now dominate the summers but remember to take in the Gilded Age 19th Century mansions.
