Spend a Day at the Beach

About Boston Beaches:
Whether you choose to head to Cape Cod for a day of fun in the sun or visit one of city’s beaches, such as South Boston’s Carson Beach, spending a day at the beach is always a top choice for Things to do in Boston during the summer months.

The long sandy beaches of Cape Cod are only about an hour and a half from The Boston Park Plaza Hotel. Many of the guests at our Boston Hotel ask our Concierge for driving directions to the Cape, and they are more than happy to oblige, but you don’t have to leave the City to enjoy some fun in the sun.

One great local beach can be found in South Boston, which is just a few minutes from our Back Bay Boston Hotel. Carson Beach tends to be less crowded than some of the Cape Cod beaches, but it still has some great amenities. You’ll find sunshades, a bathhouse and, as a delicious bonus, Sullivan’s – a food stand that has been serving fabulous hamburgers, lobster rolls, milkshakes and more since 1951.

The Boston Park Plaza Hotel is conveniently located near Carson Beach and near the highway in case you choose to make a day trip to the Cape. Our Boston Hotel is the perfect choice for your next visit to the City.

Bring your blanket, a good book, a cooler of soft drinks and a shovel and pail for the little ones, and make plans to enjoy spending a day at the beach during your next summer visit to our Boston Hotel.
