3 Outdoor Activities in Boston

Posted by Susie Callahan on Tue, Jul 07, 2015

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"

Top 5 Golf Courses Around Boston

Posted by Susie Callahan on Thu, Jun 18, 2015

Check out one of these great golf courses, thanks to GolfAdvisor,  around Boston. Perfect for a Father's Day celebration or just to enjoy the great summer weather we've been having. 

1. The International Golf Club Oaks Course

"Located 47 minutes from downtown Boston, this Tom Fazio design opened in 2001 and features five par 5s and par 3s respectively. Golf Digest rates it No. 1 in the state. (Green fees: $129)"

2. Red Tail Golf Club

"About an hour's drive from downtown Boston, Red Tail is a Brian Silva design that hosted the 2009 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship. Boston Magazine calls it the area's best. (Green fees: $89-99)"

3. Granite Links Golf Club 

"It's location, set on high elevation just 20 minutes south of downtown Boston makes for great views of the city skyline, plus the Harbor Islands to the south and east. In 2013, Sports Illustrated named the Tavern Restaurant among the best 19th holes in the world. (Green fees: $125-150)"

4. George Wright Golf Course 

"30 minutes from downtown, this is a 1929 Donald Ross design that was built in 1938 by Walter Irving Johnson, one of Ross’ associates. A lot of men spent a lot of money moving a lot of earth, which was not done at that time. (Green fees: $35 - $45)"

 5. William J. Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park 

"The original 1896 design, 20 minutes from downtown, makes it the second oldest municipal course in America (Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx was built in 1895). The course was later redesigned by Donald Ross. After a recent investment into course conditions, some golfers now say it has closed the gap on George Wright. (Green fees: $35 - $45)"
