Separated by storms and hurricanes, Martha’s Vineyard is an island off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts. With a year-round population of around 16,000 people, this island’s summer population can rise to above 100,000 visitors. If luxury is your goal, Martha’s Vineyard’s middle name is affluence. With many different hotel and bed and breakfast options, this destination sees the likes of celebrities, past presidents, and other VIPs looking to relax.
Cape May is a city and seaside resort at the tip of southern New Jersey’s Cape May Peninsula. It’s known for its grand Victorian houses, pristine beaches, and bustling promenade. Cape may offers free movies on the beach next to the ocean at night and quaint shops during the day! Come for beach and relaxation, stay for the tight-knit community and small-town atmosphere. This is a great option if you’re looking for a quiet, relaxed environment away from the hustle and bustle of busy, more urban beaches.
A more permanent community than Martha’s Vineyard, Rehoboth is a great option for a cool and casual beach time. One of the best beaches in Delaware, Rehoboth boasts a ‘just right’ boardwalk with plenty of places to dine, stay, and shop. Week-long activities such as story time yoga, environmental education opportunities, and live music at the gazebo located at the center of the boardwalk make this a great destination for solo travelers, couples, and families alike.
