For the 4th of July, my boyfriend and I went to stay with his family in Mattapoisett, MA. I must say that everything about it was absolutely breathtaking. From the beach to the outdoor shower, I was in heaven.
The community was extremely family oriented and really fun to be around. They even had races for the kids on the beach! Don't worry, everyone got a ribbon to make sure that there were only winners.
After spending an amazing afternoon on the beach, we headed back to the house for a great BBQ surrounded by family and friends. Of course no 4th of July is complete without s'mores and fireworks right on the water.
The next morning, we took a bike ride to the beach for some last minute sun and then went to Turks Seafood, which has everything from fresh fish and sushi to chicken and sandwiches. If you're ever in Massachusetts, this is definitely a great option for a weekend getaway by the beach.
