I grew up in Massachusetts, and have lived all over the world, including Hawaii, but Crane Beach in my hometown of Ipswich is still my favorite beach. First of all, you can't see any houses from the beach, and the parking area is hidden behind massive sand dunes. So, it's really just miles of incredibly-soft, white sand. There's an awesome snack bar near the parking area too, and you can do a hike from the beach, up a bluff to Crane Castle (which was used in the movie "The Witches of Eastwick").
There you have it, those are a few of my favorite road trip destinations!
