I first trav­elled there two years ago with my hus­band’s fam­ily (my mother-in-law has been go­ing since she was a kid). I fell for its rocky beaches, salty ocean air, lob­ster rolls and the an­nual Christ­mas Pre­lude, which kicks off with a tree­l­ight­ing cer­e­mony, fol­lowed by 10 days of mer­ry­mak­ing. Shops dish out ap­ple cider, the hol­i­day-hat pa­rade is a hoot and Santa rolls in on a lob­ster boat. This year will be the first time our daugh­ter—who’s now two and a half—will be able to truly de­light in this place (and grow up to love it as much as her Baba does).

The hol­i­day light dis­plays and ex­te­rior decor are sim­ply el­e­gant, fea­tur­ing white lights and ever­green wreaths with red bows.
