Beaches, wolves and clams, an Ipswich vacation has Mass appeal

Famous for Crane Beach, Little Neck clams and Wolf Hollow, Ipswich is a real gem on the Massachusetts coast. Named after an English town, Ipswich has stacks of colonial charm. Get your Massachusetts adventure off on the right foot and book a well-placed Ipswich vacation rental. Beach lovers can hang out on the sweeping Crane Beach, while culture vultures explore the 17th-century Whipple House, or browse the contemporary art at the Ipswich Museum. While foodies can indulge in a bucket of the seaside town's famous Little Neck clams. There's something for everyone in Ipswich.

Things to do

Howl you doing? Meet Ipswich's legendary wolf pack

Wolf Hollow is a sanctuary for the American gray wolf, and visitors can witness a pack of wolves in a confined natural setting. From your Ipswich vacation rental, it's easy to explore the town's main attractions. The Ipswich Museum is spread over 2 properties. Whipple House was built in 1677 and is one of the finest examples of first period American architecture. It's filled with 17th and 18th-century furnishings and art, and has a pretty garden to explore. While the 1800 Heard House hosts the museum's main art collections, among other historic Ipswich artifacts.

Activities

Cranes, clams and culture, Ipswich is stacked with New England charm

Situated north of Cape Ann, Crane Beach is a Massachusetts favorite. Boasting 4 miles of beautiful blonde sands and rippling dunes, it's banked by a maritime pine forest. It gets pretty busy during the warm summer months, so get there early to beat the crowds. There's a charming beachfront cafe open in the summer, while restrooms and changing facilities are open all year round. Aside from the beach, Ipswich is crammed with history and has plenty of charming museums and galleries to explore. Don't miss a box of fried clams on the waterfront as the sun sets.

Weather

Ip-switch up the heat in the Massachusetts summertime

The Massachusetts coast is a pleasure to visit at anytime of the year. Ipswich benefits from New England's balmy summers, colorful fall and brisk winters, with an attractive covering of snow. The summer is the busiest time on the coast. As the temperatures rise to 80 degrees and above, the crowds descend and Ipswich vacation rentals can get booked up quickly. Fall is another busy time, as New England's famous fall foliage draws the crowds. Spring is a delightful time to visit, with bright sunny days, plus the odd rain shower, so pack an umbrella.

Natural features

What will be, will be in Ipswich's Willowdale Forest

A 45-minute drive northeast of Boston, Ipswich is a quaint coastal town overlooking Ipswich Bay. While the walking trails and sand dunes of Crane Beach are a delight for walkers, for hardier hikes head to Willowdale State Forest, a 5-mile drive west. Spreading across the town boundaries of Hamilton, Topsfield and Boxford, it has over 40 miles of trails, including the Bay Circuit Trail, which is used for cross-country skiing in winter. It's also a magnet for birdwatchers, who come to spot the great horned owl, red-bellied woodpecker, and the great blue heron.
