Pre-planning makes your summer getaway more enjoyable

We all know summer travel is going to look and feel different this year. Many of the resort services we provide at Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts – from dining to outdoor activities to access to resort amenities such as our pools and spa — have changed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

These services are all operating under limited capacity and safety guidelines in accordance with the CDC and local and state health officials.

Here are some pre-planning tips to help you make the most of your North Shore vacation getaway this summer. We can’t wait to see you!
