Lynn sits on the northern shores of Boston

Little Lynn was once a smoke-belching industrial quarter of old Boston – a shoe-making powerhouse that brought wealth to many on the far side of the Mystic River. But that was back in the 1800s, and today the town is reaping the rewards of its fascinating, mechanized past. The redbrick relics on display in the Lynn Heritage State Park are just a taster of the sort of interesting historical sectors of the town. There are also elegant Victorian mansions peppering the Diamond District, and luxurious Lynn vacation rentals that are perfect for making a family trip to greater Boston.

Things to do

See revived industrial relics in Lynn

Head down to the old harbors and redbrick factories that now make up the Lynn Heritage State Park. This is the main attraction in the town, and is best explored on guided tours between the old shoemaking mills. From there, it's easy to get to the small town of Nahant and its concomitant beaches and scuba diving spots, while the Diamond Historic District offers another glimpse at the classic architecture of Lynn. More history comes at the Lynn Museum, and it's also possible to join local stargazers at the High Rock Tower Reservation on the hills – after dark, of course.

Activities

Shore walks and heritage areas in Lynn

Most of the top things to do in Lynn revolve around exploring the town's wealth of historic districts, which range from old industrial depots to salt-scented seaside suburbs that are packed with gorgeous Greek Revival homes. A couple of local operators also offer deep sea fishing charters and sailing trips out into Nahant Bay. And then there's the plentiful excursions that will take you to the heart of Boston city, where it's all about hopping between American history monuments, Irish bars, and real New England oyster shacks.

Weather

Fall for the attractions of Lynn

Given that walking tours of Lynn's old shoemaking factories, industrial streets, harbors, and breakwaters are largely conducted outside, it's a good idea to plan your vacation here when it's not the harsh Massachusetts winter. Instead, search for your Lynn vacation rentals in the fall for the best weather, when it's most likely you'll get long, warm days of sunshine to hop between the Diamond Historic District and the heritage parks.

Natural features

Lynn: Where Massachusetts meets the Atlantic

If you manage to bag Lynn vacation rentals close to the shoreline, then you'll have front-row seats over the geographical feature that made the town such an industrial powerhouse back in the 1800s: the coast. Natural harbors and docks abound there, while the occasional sandy beach and craggy inlet makes for a fine environment for scuba divers and strollers. On the other side of town, the Lynn Woods open up onto Walden Pond, which is ringed by rock-spotted walking trails and picnic clearings.
