Been going to Crane's my whole life. It's honestly one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been to, and I lived in Hawaii for 7 years.

If you're in the Greater Boston area, forget Cape Cod. It's crowded, expensive, and full of tourists. Hit the North Shore instead, and check out the gorgeous beaches on Cape Ann and the North Shore. Crane Beach in Ipswich is a nature preserve, which means no boardwalk, no cheesy souvenir stands, just a snack bar and miles and miles of beautiful beach. Don't forget to grab lunch at the famous Clam Box!

On your way back from the beach stop off at the Russell Orchards. The orchard has been in operation since 1920 and is a much-beloved local tradition. Definitely try the cider donuts, they’re to DIE for!

Beautiful Beach! One of the best that we visited on the New England Coast. Sandy and stretches forever! It does cost $20 to park for the whole day but that also includes parking and touring the grounds and 1st floor of the amazing Castle Hill Estate nearby. They also have brand new bathrooms, showers and a snack building. Sand and waves were perfect for our 3 kids. I would agree with the previous person that it was better then most of the beaches on Cape Cod.
