Vermont is well known for its natural beauty, and a surprisingly beautiful aspect of the state is its many pristine beaches along its many rivers and lakes. Many of these beaches are within a short drive of populated cities like Boston, Albany, Hartford, and Springfield, and offer a pleasant change of scenery (and far fewer people) when compared to coastal beaches.
However, arguably the best beaches in Vermont are located at the south end of the state, away from the big cities. There are a number of different places to enjoy a day at the beach, but the small town of Ludlow is a good place to start. It’s less than two hours from Boston and New York, and it also has Amtrak service to both cities. And if you’re looking for a quieter vacation spot, there are a number of campgrounds in Ludlow that provide beach access.
