    A presidential slice of New England

    With its historic red brick homes, leafy parks, and quintessential New England charm, Braintree is a fantastic base for exploring Boston and the wider region. It's anchored by a characterful downtown core, with some buildings dating back to the 1600s. Over the centuries it's played a pivotal role in the American narrative, and the area was the birthplace of Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams. Aside from its proud heritage, Braintree offers easy access to a host of Massachusetts highlights. From the Boston Harbor Islands to Beantown itself, there's a lot of New England to explore within a short distance of Braintree vacation rentals.

    From the stately Town Hall to the clapboard General Sylvanus Thayer Birthplace, Braintree is dotted with historical gems. A walking tour of the town is a great way to get your bearings and soak up local history. When the sun's shining, locals flock to Mound Street Beach, a popular stretch of sand that's great for swimming, picnicking, and beachcombing. If you're craving a street scene, the rapid transit train will whisk you from Braintree to downtown Boston in just 30 minutes. From here you can visit big-ticket attractions like the Museum of Fine Art, explore trendy boutiques in Somerville, or catch a Red Sox game at Fenway Park.
