Editors’ Choice 

Steep Hill Beach at The Crane Estate

Ipswich, 781-221-3003,

Philosophy: Elite summer picnic. This grassy knoll near the water’s edge simply begs for an elegant clambake.

Standout Qualities: Uninterrupted water views and just a few minutes’ walk along a private path to Crane Beach, for easy access to sand-strewn wedding photos.

What’s Unique: There’s no electricity at this site, so old-school entertainment, like lawn games and acoustic music, sets the stage for a laid-back day. 


Readers’ Choice 

Crane Beach


What’s Unique: Regularly named one of the most beautiful beaches in the country, Crane is a public beach and cannot be reserved for private events. But if you’re up for an informal gathering and picnic, arrive early to ensure parking, or plan an off-season event.
