Whether you're into hiking, cruising on the water, or taking a leisurely stroll through the city, Boston has an outdoor activity for just about anyone. Here are 3 ideas that will let you soak in the summertime and enjoy all that Boston has to offer.
1. Hiking: "If you want to put your hiking skills to the test, head west to theAppalachian Trail and Mt. Washington State Forest. For botanical variety, check out Greater Boston’s Garden in the Woods. For a leisurely walk through the forest, Weir Hill Reservation, located in Greater Merrimack Valley, is ideal. And for family fun, you’ll find an abundance of picnicking areas and moderately difficult trails in the central part of the state in places such as Royalston Falls and the Swift River Reservation."
2. Golfing: "Experience the rolling hills at Taconic Golf Club in Western Massachusetts. Tee up seaside at Farm Neck Golf Club in Martha’s Vineyard. Test your putting skills on the tight greens at Easton Country Club. And raise your game for two award-winning courses at Stow Acres Country Club."
3. Fishing: "For freshwater fishing, you’ll enjoy more than 500 lakes, ponds, rivers and streams stocked annually with trout, bass, herring, salmon and many other varieties. Venues range from the ice-cold streams of the Berkshire Hills to the mighty Connecticut and Merrimack Rivers. If you’re a saltwater angler, on the other hand, you will be treated to the likes of bluefish, tuna, cod, haddock, halibut and sea bass onboard charter boats, leaving from numerous Massachusetts ports in the Cape and the Islands region and up and down the coastlines"
