Host a Clambake
Set the Table
You don’t need to be at the beach to host a traditional, laid-back New England clambake. Just dress a picnic table with a
red and white checkered tablecloth and, for an extra touch, tie white linen napkins with a starfish.
To buy: $25, surlatable.com.
Why book a flight to a touristy beach resort when you can try one of these off-the-beaten-path weekend escapes?
