The Great Outdoors: Massachusetts Style

Leave a Comment
Summer is all about enjoying the great outdoors. Many days, my boys are outside from morning until night, and those are the days they fall asleep as soon as their heads hit their pillows. Oh, the great joys of summer!

I love summer in my city, but I love summer even more when it's by a beach somewhere beautiful, like Cape Cod, or Martha's Vineyard. There is just so much to do in the great outdoors in Massachusetts, especially during the summer months.

The thing my family loves to do most of all in the summertime is swim, whether it's in a swimming pool, or in the ocean. We spend hours on the beach, going for walks, collecting sea shells, playing in the water, listening to the waves, and building sand castles. With so many beautiful beaches to choose from in Massachusetts, I know we'd be very happy. I still have very fond memories of my summer in Cape Cod when I was a child, and of my time spent on the beach during that vacation.

Of course, if you're going to Boston for the first time, you'll probably want to check out Fenway Park. It's almost impossible to visit Boston without bumping into a Red Sox, Celtics, or Bruins fan—so if your family is into sports, you've come to the right place! Maybe you'll be lucky enough to catch a baseball game at Fenway Park, too.

If you love the great outdoors, but aren't a huge sports fan, there is still a ton of stuff to do in this beautiful state, like kayaking, sailing, fishing, hiking, bike rides on the many scenic paths, and visits to the zoo. You can even go whale watching while enjoying the views from the boat.

Whatever outdoor activities you and your family choose to do in Massachusetts this summer, you'll be having a blast, staying fit, and making new memories to last a lifetime.

And hey— don't forget—outdoor activities include shopping, too!
