In Massachusetts, we’ve got quite a number of beaches to pick from. City beaches, the Cape, the South Shore, and the North Shore. The traffic is insane going to the South Shore and Cape at this time of year, so we opted to go north to Manchester-by-the-Sea. Their Singing Beach has a special sand that squeaks when you walk on it. Something about the sand’s shape and make up. It’s quite amusing to drag your feet in it and hear it squeak. It’s also a quit beach because legal parking for out-of-towners is hard to come by, and you have to pay $5 to go on the beach. You can also take the commuter rail up as well. But because it requires a little effort and some walking, a lot of people opt for other beaches leaving this one wonderfully quiet. Just avoid high tide as the beach nearly disappears.
