Yankee Magazine’s Summer Issue Showcases New England’s Best Beachside Destinations

“Sandcastles by the Sea” Cover Story A Great Resource For Any Style New England Vacation

DUBLIN, NH (July 6, 2015) – Yankee, the iconic American magazine now in its 80th year of covering the finest of New England’s offerings, has just published its summer issue (July-August) featuring the cover story, “Sandcastles by the Sea,” showcasing some of the most inviting and timeless beachside destinations throughout New England.

Written by Christina Tree, “Sandcastles by the Sea” is the ultimate guide to where to stay in New England this summer and will leave readers ready to book their next vacation. Whether looking for a romantic getaway, a family vacation or a solo trip, there is something for everyone, regardless of preferred vacation style and budget. From reasonably priced motels, B&B’s and campgrounds, to luxury resorts, Yankee offers it all.

“Imagine waking up to sunlight streaming into your seaside room. Look out and see it sparkling on the ocean. Feel the cool morning sand on your toes. And listen to the waves,” writes Mel Allen, editor of Yankee. “Our cover story will put you as close to the beach as possible, whether in a tent, a cottage, or a famous resort. We know that summer rooms on the beach can be pricey, which is why we’ve included so many different options. What ties them together is that each one offers a favorite spot on the beach, just beyond your door, on a day that promises to stretch ahead forever.”

From walking along pristine private beaches, enjoying a wide host of outdoor activities, antiquing, indulging in spa treatments, discovering a hidden oasis, to building sandcastles and frolicking in the water with your family, sightseeing, bird watching, kicking back in a hammock with a good book, or watching the sunset during a gourmet dinner, visitors can soak in the New England charm and decades-long history that many of these destinations have experienced.

A small sampling of what readers can enjoy:

The Breakers Inn (Scarborough, ME) opened as an inn in 1932, has been owned by the same family since 1956, and gets booked up in January for the following summer.
