January vacation in New England (<2 hrs. from Boston)

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a 3-day New England getaway at the start of January, before we both return to teaching. We are looking for a place to relax, sleep late, unwind in front of the fireplace, stroll about town, enjoy local seafood, and walk along the coast (if the weather permits). Ideally, our vacation locale would be:

* Within a 2 hour drive from Boston (I'll be 7 months pregnant, and we don't want to drive too far, especially with the risk of snow).
* On the coast - we love the ocean, even in the winter.
* In a large enough town that restaurants will be open. We were in Kennebunkport for 3 days in March, and while we had a lovely time, many of the restaurants were still closed.

We have been considering Newport, RI, Some of the larger Cape Cod towns, the southern coast of Maine, etc. Possibly Mystic, CT?

Any suggestions for which town might be the best fit? We also welcome suggestions for bed and breakfasts (we will spend a good amount of time relaxing in our room, so value a king-sized bed, large tub, fireplace, etc., and hope to take advantage of both winter rates and mid-week specials to stay somewhere a bit nicer for less money). Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
