Our mission is to serve the 50+ traveler whos ready to cross a few items off their bucket list.

We gave our expert travel writers the impossible task of narrowing down which adorable New England towns they think our readers should visit this year. From New Hampshires cultured seacoast to Cape Cods white sand beaches, several of the places they suggest are on the water. Were not complaining we love fresh seafood! However, if the mountains are calling,TravelAwaitswriters have an answer for that as well. Here are 11 adorable New England towns to consider adding to your travel list in 2023.

Every summer, countless beach lovers make the pilgrimage toOgunquit, Maine. Its no surprise, saysSean Conneely. Situated along the states southern coast, it is a picturesque, compact jewel of a town.

A 3-mile expanse of smooth, white sand,Ogunquit Beachprovides the perfect playground for every beach activity. However, this 4-square-mile town offers attractions beyond its famed beach.

Stroll theMarginal Way, a coastal path boasting sweeping views of Maines rocky coastline, or visitPerkins Cove, a bustling commercial area that was once an artists colony. Indoor activities include the seasonalOgunquit Museum of American Art(the setting alone is worth a visit) or a show atOgunquits Leavitt TheatreorOgunquit Performing Arts.

Dont miss out on Ogunquits many great restaurants. Maines signature seafood offering, lobster, is widely available, of course. But culinary options range far and wide, from Italian to Thai to Mediterranean. So, whether its a lazy day at the beach or a tasty lobster, Ogunquit never disappoints, Conneely asserts.

Located on a peninsula in Casco Bay,Portlandis surrounded by the Gulf of Maine and the Atlantic Ocean. That means the seafood doesnt get any fresher and there are plenty of chances to get out on the water, saysMira Temkin. Or do both. On herLucky Catchlobster excursion, Temkin got to pull traps from the ocean. Afterward, they cooked up her catch! Dont want to do the hard work yourself? Check out our article onHow To Do A Lobster Crawl In Portland, Maine.

Summer is really the best time to visit when you can go on alighthouse tour, Temkin tells us. Check outPortland Head Light, one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. Or hike inAcadia National Park. According to Temkin, this charming town is a mecca for the arts, too, with concerts on the water, chamber music, ballet, symphony, an art museum, and more.

Portland has also become aculinary destination. Treat yourself to a lobster bake and a gourmet potato donut fromThe Holy Donut. Explore nearby towns likeFalmouth, Cape Elizabeth, and Scarborough.

There are so many adorable towns in New England, butSandi Barrettsgo-to getaway is anywhere onCape Cod. Extensive white sand beaches and amazing seafood eateries wrap around The Cape from the bridges toProvincetown. I typically headquarter inDennisand work my way out to the corners of the island from there, says Barrett. Her favorite spot on The Cape is charmingChatham.

When Im feeling I need a little luxury, I head over toChatham Bars Innfor a bubbly cocktail and a light nosh, says Barrett. If its a little less posh day, then a brew and nibble at theChatham Squirefit the bill. Its easy to work up an appetite wandering the downtown area filled with little shops.

There is always an interesting event taking place in Kate Gould Park, the center of Chathams downtown. Unique art exhibits featuring local artists, concerts, and other community events bring this delightful park to life, Barrett tells us. Chatham is truly adorable.

The smell of the sea and oil paint mix in this adorable town on Cape Ann, describesMeryl Pearlstein. I always stop to honor Gloucesters fishing heritage with a visit to theFishermans Memorial, which looks hopefully out to sea, she tells us. Near the myriad fishing boats isCrows Nest, the bar frequented by Mark Wahlberg inThe Perfect Storm, which Pearlstein deems as a great introduction to local culture.

A short drive from downtown,Rocky Neckis an art colony filled with works by water colorists, sculptors, and makers. Parking is tough here, but you can take a water shuttle from downtown to the dock byThe Studio, a great place for a lobster roll and beer. For more creativity, Pearlstein suggests checking out theHammond Castle Museum, which she calls an artifact-filled fantasy from inventor John Hays Hammond, Jr., with a pipe organ and hidden wine cellar. Sounds neat!

Wondering what the best time to visit Gloucester might be? Pearlstein says Gloucester is crowded during the summer, beautiful in the fall, and pure New England heartiness when its cold.

I can get lost wandering the winding, narrow streets of Old Marblehead, Pearlstein tells us. More than 200 pre-Revolutionary War houses date from the mid-1600s, some with windows almost to the ground. Theres the famousLafayette Houserumored to have been notched to allow passage of Lafayettes carriage, beautiful bed and breakfasts, and Marblehead Harbor with its tranquil Lighthouse Park and thousands of sailboats.

Pearlstein recommends stopping for an art break to see the historicSpirit of 76painting in Abbott Hall. Grab a brew atMaddies Sail LoftorThe Landing(the setting for the movieComa) and try to score a window seat for a chowder atThe Barnacle, a tiny clam shack. Bring home some wicked dark chocolates from century-oldStowaway Sweets.

Founded in 1638, MarbleheadsOld Burial Hillcemetery was featured inHocus Pocus. Pearlstein says it is popular for perusing somewhat ghoulish carvings. Marblehead is about as historic and charming a town as youll find anywhere in New England.

Small, friendly, and walkable, Newmarket is an amuse-bouche of New Hampshires cultured seacoast,Robin Catalanoshares, without the crowds of its equally photogenic marquee city,Portsmouth(about 25 minutes away). A former mill town located on the Lamprey River, Newmarket has a tidy main drag composed of striking historic buildings that house shops, cafes, restaurants, and studios.

Catalano recommends scouting for birds and forest flora atHeron Point Wildlife Sanctuaryacross the river, then heading into town for comfort food and craft cocktails atSavannah Kitchen, or a locally-made beer atDeciduous Brewing. For the morning crowd,Crackskulls Coffee & Bookshas an enormous menu of coffees, teas, and sweet treats. Im keeping an eye on the opening date of theTipsy Tabby, the areas first cat cafe, where you can cuddle a new feline friend while sipping a latte, Catalano confides.

Woodstock, New Hampshire, winsSJ Morgensensvote for one of the most adorable New England towns to visit. Nestled in the White Mountains, the views are incredible, she describes. Any time is a great time to go depending on what youre looking for. We enjoyed hiking in the cooler mountain temperatures during the summer, although winter is popular for skiing. And of course, in the fall, the area explodes with brilliant colors.

Make sure you drive theKancamagus Highway, Morgensen relays. Youll love the views and there are plenty of pull-offs so you can snap the perfect picture. She recommends heading toWoodstock Inn Breweryfor craft beer and good food. You can also stay at the inn, a good spot for exploring the little towns all around. NearbyFranconia Notch State Parkis a must-visit. Jump in the tram for spectacular scenery as you head upCannon Mountain. At the summit, take a short hike to see views of mountains in four states.

My stay inBristol, Rhode Islandwas filled with everything I wanted for a weekend getaway, Barrett attests. Bristols charm begins at the waterfront and expands outward, encompassing beautiful old buildings,fabulous restaurants, and leisurely outdoor adventures.

Take a step back in time atBlithewold Mansion. Strolling the elaborate gardens takes you through intricately planned beds, densely forested areas, and glades with sweeping views, describes Barrett. Perched on Narragansett Bay, the mansion is filled with ornate, period decor.

According to Barrett, theBradford-Dimond-Norris Housebed and breakfast is the coziest spot to rest your head after a day of touring. I loved the four-poster bed, antique decor, stunning fireplace, and perfectly appointed powder room, she recalls. Breakfast was served in a sunshine-lit dining room and I enjoyed a lively conversation with the other guests seated at the long table.

Bristol is a lovely town with lots to offer visitors, says Barrett, perfect for a quick getaway from Boston.

The jewel of Rhode Islands coastline,Newportshines like a polished diamond. Newports history is rooted in sailing and the bygone Gilded Age. Once a playground for the rich and famous, it can now be enjoyed by everyone. The beauty of Narragansett Bay, with its sailing ships and yachts, will have you dreaming of seafaring stories of wealth and adventure, Barrett tells us.

Newport is a treasured destination for the young and young at heart. Bands of bachelorettes mingle with boomer couples as each generation revels in Newports good-life atmosphere, describes Barrett. You will find rich history, amazing cuisine, and charming views that will captivate your attention no matter how old you are.

Taylor Swift fans are familiar with Watch Hill, says Pearlstein. The singers 1930 mansion sits along 700 feet of beautiful shoreline. Watch Hill comes with a historic pedigree, filled with grand shingle cottages that overlook three immaculate beaches. Packed with summer vacationers, Watch Hill empties out during colder months, leaving you alone to beach comb for sea glass a favorite pastime here.

I love the Flying Horse Carousel, a fixture since 1883 and one of the countrys oldest operating merry-go-rounds, Pearlstein tells us.Watch Hill Lighthouseand its small museum offer a great overview of the area.

New England is chock-full ofquaint general stores. The General Storeat The Harbour House Inn and the towns antique stores keep me busy searching out treats and memorabilia from my childhood, Pearlstein says. A classic wooden New England resort,Ocean Househas a commanding seaside view and a fabulous Sunday jazz brunch. If you feel like splurging, spend a night here getting pampered, any time of the year.

Ive never found a city that so seamlessly mixes college life with gastronomy, lake living, and winter sports, Pearlstein tells us.Burlington, while not the states capital, is certainly the center of activity in Vermont. The University of Vermont (UVM as its known) adds a vibrancy with its beautiful campus and fills the bars and restaurants that line pedestrian-only Church Street with students mixing with locals, describes Pearlstein.

A preponderance of chefs from CIA [Culinary Institute of America] or those who felt like escaping NYC have opened a bevy of locavore-focused restaurants here, Pearlstein informs us.Hen of the WoodandLeunigs Bistroare her favorites. Walk off these meals with a stroll around beautiful Lake Champlain, or take a sunset cruise for a simply idyllic evening. During the winter, you can easily drive toBolton Valleyfor downhill skiing. Or just strap on your Nordic skis and cross-country from UVM to the lake, suggests Pearlstein. Theres plenty of snow to be had in Burlington!
