Only 15 miles from downtown Boston, the charming town of Lincoln is a destination for history buffs, nature lovers and foodies alike. A leisurely drive along its winding roads will take hungry visitors past tree-lined meadows and scenic ponds as they make their way through one of the most historically rich parts of Massachusetts that also offers plenty of good eating. Lincoln boasts family-friendly pizza joints and corner cafés as well as upscale, locally sourced restaurants. Local New England cheese and charcuterie plates are worth seeking out. So are the lobster rolls. Keep your eyes open for crispy fried oysters or mussels swimming in lemon and wine. For a decadent savory delight, pick up some lobster hush puppies at a Lincoln seafood shack.
