Nahant, Massachusetts, USA
Why Nahant? It’s a tiny, picture-perfect peninsula and is one of those rare places where you feel very safe – it has a real sense of community.
Your secret address? Request a balcony room at the Inn at Crystal Cove – it overlooks the picturesque Boston harbor and city skyline. inncrystalcove.com
What’s on your shopping list? I always visit the quaint boutique C’est La Vie in Marblehead to find one-of-a-kind pieces for my home in Italy. And I scour the local antiques market for artisan jewelry.
Your vacation style? Laid-back glamor. I pack Burberry cat-eye sunglasses; my own swimsuits and kaftans; and strappy Saint Laurent sandals for dancing.
“Nahant has giant cliffs, ENDLESS shores and gorgeous tidal POOLS”
